GREAT FALLS – NFL Hall of Famer Rod Woodson was the guest speaker at Montana State’s Triangle Classic Banquet on Friday, April 13th. Woodson made his defensive back name legendary as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers for ten years back in the late 80s and throughout the 90s. He won a Super Bowl as a safety with the Baltimore Ravens back in 2001 and has the NFL record with most interceptions returned for a touchdown with 12. His 71 career interceptions is the third-most in NFL history. At the event, Woodson just wanted the Montana State players to self-reflect, and that belief will lead to success.

“Hopefully the (Montana State) guys start believing in who they are. I think that’s the biggest thing,” said Woodson. “My biggest message tonight for the kids who are playing that they have to believe in who they see in the mirror. You think they believe it because they talk a good game and are sometimes very vocal about it. But a lot of the time when it comes down to it, they really don’t believe in what they see. A lot of the help that they can get comes from that same person that they see in the mirror.”
