Bleier To Deliver Keynote Address

November 6th, 2012
ICAS announces that former Pittsburgh Steeler Rocky Bleier will deliver the keynote address at the 2012 ICAS Convention on Tuesday, December 11 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Best known as a member of the 1970s Steelers team that won four Super Bowls in six years, Bleier is also a veteran of the Vietnam War. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame and playing his rookie year with the Steelers in 1968, Bleier was drafted into the U.S. Army in December of 1968. In August of 1969, after his legs were seriously injured in battle, he was told that he would never play football again. Bleier’s story of overcoming obstacles and challenges to reach the highest levels of athletic achievement will serve as an inspiring and motivational kick-off to this year’s ICAS Convention. The opening general session begins at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, December 11.
