Kirk Cousins, Michigan State University standout and NFL quarterback for the Washington Redskins, will be the featured speaker at the 8th Annual West Michigan Sports Commission Luncheon on Friday, May 2, 2014 at 12 p.m. (noon) thanks to speaker underwriting support from The Peter Secchia Family.   The luncheon will be held in the International Ballroom of the JW Marriott Hotel, 235 Louis Campau Promenade NW.

 

The West Michigan Sports Commission Annual Luncheon, sponsored again this year through generous support by Steelcase, Inc., Smith Haughey Rice & Roegge, Swift Printing & Communications and DP Fox; serves as a fundraiser as well as a progress report to the community and stakeholders on the success of the organization in promoting and hosting youth and amateur sporting events in the region for economic enhancement, healthy living and creating a vibrant community through sport.

 

Cousins, a Holland Christian High School graduate and standout athlete was recruited to play for Michigan State University by Coach Mark Dantonio.  He finished his career as Michigan State's all-time record holder in passing touchdowns, passing yards, completions, passing efficiency, total offense and 200-yard passing games.  He ranks among the Big Ten's all-time Top 10 in completion percentage, passing efficiency rating, passing yards and TD passes.  Cousins is only the second three-time captain in MSU history and is the winningest quarterback in Spartan history.  He led the Spartans to Big Ten Championships and a win at the Outback Bowl in his senior year.  

 

Cousins, who starred at Holland Christian High School and Michigan State University, is in the midst of his second season in the National Football League playing for the Washington Redskins. Cousins was drafted in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL draft, and he had a successful rookie season playing backup to starter and fellow rookie Robert Griffin III. Cousins filled in for the injured Griffin late in the season and helped lead Washington to a victory over the Cleveland Browns.  Washington finished 10-6 overall during the regular season a year ago and won the NFC East before losing to Seattle 24-14 in the playoffs. Cousins played in three games last year and completed 33-of-48 passes for 466 yards. He threw four touchdown passes and three interceptions. Cousins’ performance has some saying he is the best backup quarterback in the league.
