Ex-Bear to talk Thursday on college recruiting

Updated: March 8, 2013 7:43AM

Former Chicago Bears player Doug Plank will give a presentation on college athletic recruiting on Thursday at 7 p.m. at Lakes High School on Grass Lake Road in Lake Villa.

“It’s a Game ... Know the Rules” is a reality check for families of student-athletes looking to get their degree and play at the college level.

Plank currently is head coach of the Orlando team in the Arena Football League. The Bears’ famed “46” defense was named for Plank, who wore that jersey number.

Anyone with a son or daughter who wants to play college sports and earn a degree is urged to attend.
