48 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK MID-WEST FASTENER ASSOCIATION PO Box 5, Lake Zurich, IL 60047 TOLL-FREE 1-800-753-8338 TEL 847-438-8338 EMAIL WEB MWFA AWARDS ,000 IN SCHOLARSHIPS By Nancy Rich On November 3rd, when the MWFA held their annual meeting to award scholarships, Dan Hampton, former NFL player was the guest speaker. Dan was a first-round draft pick of the Chicago Bears in 1979 following an All-America season at the University of Arkansas. An outstanding and versatile defensive lineman, Hampton would play 12 seasons with the Bears. Six times he earned first- or second-team All-Pro honors as either a defensive tackle or defensive end. Nicknamed “Danimal” for his ferocious style of play, Hampton persevered through 10 knee surgeries and numerous other injuries as he became recognized as one of the game’s most dedicated players. Hampton was an impact player even as a rookie. In his first season he was credited with 70 tackles, 48 of which were solo efforts, as well as two fumble recoveries, three passes defensed, and two sacks. It’s for the 1985 season, however, that Dan and the Bears’ defense is best remembered. That year, the stingy Chicago defense allowed just 198 points and shut out both opponents in the NFC playoffs. The Bears went on to destroy the New England Patriots 46-10 in Super Bowl XX. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2002. He spoke of the importance of goals while sharing great stories of his football career. You cannot complete a mission without goals that you see through.
