For Penn students looking to get more into the local football scene, there's more than just Sunday matchups on the gridiron.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver and Super Bowl LII champion Nelson Agholor will be speaking at Huntsman Hall on Sept. 24 at 6:30 p.m., in an event titled "Becoming a Champion." Hosted by Wharton, the event is part of a series of 'Fireside Chats' from the Wharton Alternative Investments Initiative.

Agholor will be interviewed by Jonathan Coslet, chief investment officer of TPG Capital. Coslet himself will be giving a lecture earlier in the day as well.

The receiver has been with the team since he was drafted 20th overall in the 2015 Draft, and has had a successful run with the team, especially working in the slot. He was part of a Philadelphia squad last season that brought the city its first Super Bowl win, and contributed 84 total yards.

The event will be recorded and uploaded to the Wharton website and YouTube channel, but students interested in seeing Agholor speak live can register for the event while there's still space.
