CHICAGO — NFL Hall of Famer Howie Long will present the keynote address.

CHICAGO — According to a press release, Howie Long, National Football League Hall of Famer and former defensive end for the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders, is joining the lineup for The Car Wash Show™ 2018 and will conduct the keynote presentation at the State of the Industry Breakfast on Friday, April 27th.

Long is currently best known as in-studio analyst for the Emmy Award-winning FOX NFL Sunday Show, the release continued.

On the gridiron, Long was regarded as one of the most feared defensive players in the history of the NFL as a member of the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders, the release noted.

The Raiders selected Long in the second round of the 1981 NFL Draft from Villanova University, the release noted, and in his 13 years playing for them, Long was elected to the Pro Bowl eight times, tying the Raiders’ all-time record.

On July 29, 2000, he secured a place among the all-time greats of the game with his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, the release stated.

Over the last 24 years, Long has been working as an Emmy Award-winning analyst for Fox NFL Sunday, the release added, and during that time, Fox NFL Sunday has been the No. 1 rated pre-game show for over 20 years.

Long has participated in eight Super Bowl broadcasts viewed by over 800 million people, the release stated.

Long has also hosted “Howie Long’s Tough Guys Show” on FOX, honoring the toughest players in the NFL, the release added.

In addition to his professional duties, Long has been active globally, nationally and locally in charity work, the release noted; while Long’s non-profit involvements are too numerous to list, his focus is on children, health issues and youth athletics.

Long resides in Virginia and Arizona with his wife of 35 years, Diane, the release concluded.
