Powell to Speak in Rockford for National Day of Prayer
The 2006 CBA Rookie of the Year and Rockford Lightning starting forward is staying
busy in the off-season both on and off the basketball court.
Roger Powell Jr. is coming off a very successful rookie year with the Lightning in
which he was named the CBA Rookie of the Year, starter in the All-Star game,
All-League 2nd Team, and broke a 12-year old Lightning rookie scoring
When the Lightning season ended last month as they fell just short of the CBA
Finals, Powell returned home to continue to train for the NBA. He has also made it
his calling and his passion to spread the word of God to the new generation of
athletes that are beginning their journeys through the high school and college

floor, Powell is also an ordained minister. He is a Christian Speaker who has spoke
at such events as the Governor's Prayer Breakfast last year and recently at the
Rockford Christian Chapel. Tickets for the event this Thursday are $15 each. To
