Timmerman to speak about 'My Life as a Pro' Saturday

Friday, February 12, 2010

Adam Timmerman, Cherokee resident and Washington High alumnus (Class of 1989) will be the featured speaker at a program at the Sanford Museum Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

His main topic will be about what he did after his graduation from South Dakota State University, where he excelled in the classroom and was also a consensus Division II All American for two years, with All-Academic Honors for three years, and was selected Division II Offensive Lineman of the Year his senior season.

Adam Timmerman
As most of you probably know, Timmerman was drafted by the NFL's Green Bay Packers and played in the National Football League for 12 seasons (1995-2006) with the Green Bay Packers and the St. Louis Rams. Adam played in the offensive line, as a guard, and was a starter in every game from his second season until his last.

He was one of the primary blockers for future Hal-of-Fame quarterbacks Brett Favre and Kurt Warner, and played in four Super Bowl games with that duo - two with the Packers and two with the Rams - winning one and losing one with each team.

Since his retirement, Adam has dropped a lot of his "football weight," and has returned to Cherokee with his wife Jana and their three children, son Mason, and daughters Alexa and Jada. Adam is the son of Roni and the late Larry Timmerman, and Jana is the daughter of Mary and the late Jim Lickiss, all of Cherokee.

Adam has returned to farming with his brother Kent, also works with some John Deere implement dealerships in the area, and has been coaching youth football in Cherokee.

He also recently "signed on" with some other notable former Iowa prep, college and pro football players - former Hawkeyes Tim Dwight, Matt Sherman and Matt Hughes - to serve as coaches at a camp for grades 4-12 area football players, run by the Elite Academy. This camp will take place on June 23, 24, and 25 at the South Sioux City High School football field.

Come on over to the Sanford Museum Saturday night at 7:30 and hear about Adam Timmerman's "Life in the NFL."
