When you get a NFL Hall of Famer to speak at the Republican National Convention, you can expect football references. That’s just what Fran Tarkenton delivered on the final day of the convention.
When speaking at the event in Cleveland, the legendary former quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants in the NFL and the University of Georgia in college brought up Nick Saban’s name when talking about Donald Trump’s leadership skills.
“I believe it all comes down to leadership,” Tarkenton said. “Whether it was Vince Lombardi years ago or the great Nick Saban of Alabama today, I can tell you, in just five simple words, what every great leader does. A leader gets stuff done.”
