TEDx Speakers | Shane Wickes
Shane is a strong believer in the power of sports to bridge social gaps. He was born in Reno, Nevada. As a walk-on football player for Boise State University he was inspired to become a coach after his playing career came to an end.
Returning home to Reno he quickly got back into the saddle and started coaching at his high school Alma mater. Recently he fulfilled his dream of being the Varsity Offensive Line Coach and at the age of 21 became the youngest Line Coach in the school’s history. A senior at the University of Nevada, Reno, Shane is majoring in Finance and Economics. He is the author of the blog Faith, Family, Football.
He loves the game. Coaching is a strong passion for Shane and it has given him the ability to do what he loves most – have a meaningful impact on the lives of others.
