Cedarville, Ohio—Clark Kellogg, sports analyst for CBS, is speaking at Cedarville University’s chapel service on October 6 at 10 a.m. His message is free and open to the public.

Kellogg played basketball for The Ohio State University between 1979 and 1982. During his senior year, his dream of playing for the NBA became a reality: after being named the Big Ten Most Valuable Player, he was drafted in the first round by the Indiana Pacers.

“I was on my way to experiencing everything I’d ever dreamed of,” Kellogg says. “But five years later knee trouble ended my career.”

Before his injury, Kellogg acknowledged the existence of God but had no real concept of what a relationship with Christ should be like. “Like many of us, I thought doing good things and making my parents and others proud would please God.”

After numerous surgeries, Kellogg came to Christ and began a successful career as a sports analyst. In 1997, he was named the lead college basketball analyst for CBS Sports. He is best known for his work with “The Road to the Final Four” and for his efforts as a game analyst during CBS’s NCAA Tournament coverage.

“Kellogg has an incredible witness to many in the world of professional sports,” says Dr. Bill Brown, president of Cedarville. “He is one who is really making a difference for Christ.”
