Three time Super Bowl winner Tim McKyer will be speaking at the Parenting Rights Convention to be held at the Hotel Utica in upstate New York on April 15 – 17, 2011.
Tim is a former professional American football player who was selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the third round of the 1986 NFL Draft. A 6’0″, 174-lb. cornerback from the University of Texas at Arlington, McKyer played in 12 NFL seasons for 7 different teams from 1986 to 1997. McKyer prepped at Lincoln High School in Port Arthur, Texas.
His best year as a pro came during his rookie season with San Francisco, intercepting 6 passes for 33 yards and 1 touchdown. He was an All Pro Corner for 2 NFL seasons and was named to the “All Madden Team”. During the Carolina Panthers inaugural season, he intercepted a pass and scored on a ninety-six yard interception run for a touchdown to defeat the Super Bowl Champ San Francisco 49ers. A three-time Super Bowl winner with the 49ers in 1988 and 1989 and the Denver Broncos in 1997, McKyer became a journeyman throughout the 1990’s, bouncing from team to team until he ended his NFL career after the 1997 season. Though he is most likely remembered for giving up the game winning touchdown to Tony Martin in the 1994 AFC Championship Game while with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The touchdown allowed the heavy underdog San Diego Chargers reach Super Bowl XXIX in one of the biggest upsets in AFC Championship history.
Tim Mckyer is an advocate for Fathers rights. He actively speaks at engagements around the country and has been instrumental in lobbying state law makers for more Pro Father legislation.
