It’s not who they are that make individuals or organizations great, it is what they have overcome! One of the most effective ways to have people understand and believe this is to expose them to someone who has done it. Greg Horvath is an amazing example of an ordinary person achieving extraordinary results against incredible odds.
Greg Horvath had always dreamed of one day going to college and playing college football. But unable to cope with the effects of a devastating childhood, he turned to alcohol, dropped out of high school and missed his opportunity, decisions that haunted him for years. Despite turning his life around in 1990 and establishing an award winning career in real estate, Horvath still felt that he had never shed the mistakes of his past. In 1999, after years of planning and training, Horvath took a leap of faith and pursued his seemingly impossible childhood dream.
Unbelievably, in 2000 at age 38, Greg Horvath was accepted at Saddleback College in California and given an opportunity to try out for the football team. Not only did he make the team, but he was named “Most Inspirational Player” for the 2000 season. Greg was also placed on the President’s Honor List for maintaining a 4.0 GPA. It was a dream come true! Horvath’s story was so inspirational that it was aired nationally in Canada, and was considered for a 2002 Gemini Award.
Greg Horvath now works as a motivational speaker, and in the field of recovery as a renowned interventionist and sober coach. He also works closely with Dan Cronin, the Director of Counseling for the National Hockey League and Major League Soccer. Horvath is the co-creator and co-host of the Let’s Talk Recovery Radio Show in Los Angeles and he is also in the preliminary stages of having his life story made into a major motion picture!
Greg Horvath has discovered his absolute passion to share his story and to entertain and inspire others to succeed at virtually anything they truly desire, no matter what their past or present circumstance. He is an extremely charismatic individual who has the ability to empower others. Horvath was able to overcome a tremendous amount of adversity to live his dream and because of this he is becoming one of the most sought after speakers in North America.
