Former Marshall and NFL quarterback Chad Pennington returned to Huntington on Saturday for his 8th annual Celebrity Bowlathon in Huntington.
Money raised went to help fund Pennington’s 1st and Foundation that helps build stronger communities in the Tri-State area.
This year’s Celebrities included current New York Jets Quarterback Mark Sanchez, Jets offensive tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson and former Marshall head coach Bob Pruett.
Pennington says he was thrilled to see some of his closest friends in town to help out a good cause. - Via 13 CBS
As you know Mark reached out to Chad for advice during the offseason:
I think the most important stat line from last year was turnovers. So anything I can do to eliminate turnovers, that’s what I’m going to do. That’s why I called [Pennington]. You look at Chad and, number one, he has played for [new Jets offensive coordinator Tony] Sparano before, so that was natural right there. It made a grand slam [with] him being one of the most cerebral quarterbacks in the game the past few years, up there with Peyton Manning.
[He's] a great decision maker, knows when to throw the ball away, knows when to check it down, knows when to take a sack, call a timeout, how to run a two-minute drill. He knows how to save turnovers and that’s key to me. If we save four or five turnovers last season, we’re looking at a different season and a different last three games and who knows. – SI
