2017 Keynote: Charles Tillman
Charles “Peanut” Tillman is a former NFL cornerback (Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers), 2013 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award winner, husband, and father of four.
Tillman attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where he started all four years at left cornerback for the Ragin’ Cajuns football team from 1999 to 2002.
Beloved by fans and former teammates alike, since his retirement from the NFL last year, Tillman now focuses on caring for his community and supporting his Cornerstone Foundation, whose mission is to help improve the lives of critically and chronically ill children throughout Chicago.
Last summer, Tillman joined the on-air lineup as an analyst for the Sunday morning pregame show, Fox NFL Kickoff, alongside host Charissa Thompson and analysts Colin Cowherd and Dave Wannstedt.
