NFL legends Steve Young, Jerry Rice to speak at innovation conference
February 24, 2021 - The Synapse Summit, an annual conference for the Florida’s tech sector that usually takes place in Tampa but is being held virtually this year, has added NFL Hall of Famers Steve Young and Jerry Rice to its lineup of guest speakers, along with Cameo founder Steven Galanis, who recently located from Chicago to Tampa. Quarterback Young — who began his NFL career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — and wide receiver Rice played together for 12 years as members of the San Francisco 49ers, connecting for 85 touchdowns. They've teamed up again to launch 8 to 80 Zones, an initiative to help youth living in underserved communities in Tampa, Atlanta and Miami gain skills that can lead to careers in technology, e-sports, video games and media. The Synapse Summit takes place March 8-11.
