      Sharing a Message: Ex-Illini Star Stephen Bardo visits with QHS Athletes

      SHARING A MESSAGE: EX-ILLINI STAR STEPHEN BARDO VISITS WITH QHS BLUE DEVIL ATHLETES

      It might seem a little incongruent....bringing in a former college basketball star to keynote a fundraiser called "Football Building Character"...but listen to former Flying Illini great Stephen Bardo for just a few minutes and you realize his motivational insights easily broach sports borders.

      Prior to tonight's Dinner event, Bardo addressed Quincy High Athletes on topics that included his transition from basketball to broadcasting, the importance of networking and developing business contacts, and the fortitude it takes to deal with adversity.

      For Bardo, who is currently an Analyst for the Big Ten Network, the audience and the cause tonight is one near and dear to his heart.
