National Football League (NFL) Player Chad Lewis Highlights the Importance of Studying a Second Language

Chad Lewis is currently a player with the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League in the United States.  I came across this interesting video (below) on YouTube of Chad Lewis promoting the value of learning a second language, in his case the Chinese language, at BYU.  Lewis has been to China multiple times to represent the NFL and in 2002 took a three nation trip to Taiwan, Singapore and Thailand.  You can learn more about his travels here.  Nice to see such support for foreign language study and international education from an NFL player!
