Powell to Speak in Rockford for National Day of Prayer

May 3, 2006 - Continental Basketball Association 1 (CBA 1) - Rockford Lightning News Release

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 record.

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 ranks.

Roger is returning to Rockford on Thursday, May 4th, as the featured speaker at the Rockford Area Leadership Prayer Luncheon that will be held from 11:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at Giovanni's Restaurant. Long with being an exceptional athlete on the basketball 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 purchase tickets contact Tammie at 316-7257 or email her at [email protected]

There is still a number of limited edition Roger Powell autographed box scores available through the Lightning office. Please e-mail [email protected] or reply to this e-mail for more information on how to obtain your copy today.
