Joel Penton is a graduate of The Ohio State University and played 5 years of football for the Buckeyes. He was a member of 3 Big Ten championship teams, a member of the National Championship team, and a 4-time Academic All-Big Ten selection.
In his senior year, Joel received the prestigious Wuerffel Trophy, also known as the Humanitarian Heisman. The Trophy is a national award that recognizes the one college football player in the entire country who best combines exemplary community service with athletic and academic achievement.
After graduating from OSU, Joel turned down an opportunity to play in the NFL to begin a career in full-time speaking. Since then he has spoken at over 500 schools and to nearly 1 million teens across the United States. He brings a positive message to students that is both relevant and impactful. Joel’s stories of personal trials and subsequent triumphs are proof that ordinary people can accomplish great things by simply following through with their commitments.
Joel is a native of Van Wert, Ohio and currently lives in Columbus, Ohio with his wife, Bethany, and five children, Joel III, Judah, Luther, Vera, and Levi.
We are excited to have Joel speak to our community and welcome everyone to attend the service. Mark your calendars now, and plan to be there – we would love to have you join us!
