The Daily Cougar described the talk in an article titled "Acclaimed sports agent Leigh Steinberg makes campus visit", below is a excerpt from the article:
Stein received his education from California but has links to UH through his work. He has represented former UH quarterbacks Andre Ware and David Klingler.
His appearance at UH was less of a standard book promotion and more a chance to share his life, work beliefs and goals with the attending students. With 40 years of experience to work with during his two-hour talk, he didn’t have many slow spots.
His focus was more on what he has worked for: things he cares greatly about and works for endlessly. Steinberg called concussions a “ticking time bomb that are a threat to football.” He’s held numerous conferences to raise awareness of the side effects and danger, which include Alzheimer’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and dementia.
