Through the course of his NFL career, there was a Tom Dempsey appearance with the New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Rams, Houston Oilers, and Buffalo Bills. He is best known for holding the record for longest field goal in NFL history: 63 yards. However, there is some controversy surrounding Dempsey’s kick, as he was born without toes on his right foot and wore a modified boot with more surface area. Some players claim the boot gave Dempsey an unfair advantage.
**Tom Dempsey Speaker**
Aside from his successful football career, another possible Tom Dempsey speaker topic is his struggle to play even with a modified shoe, or his experience during Hurricane Katrina, which flooded his house and destroyed most of his property.
**Tom Dempsey Appearance**
Being born without toes on his right foot didn’t hinder Dempsey from playing football, nor did it stop him from setting a record that’s held up for 28 years. As a result, a Tom Dempsey appearance is a perfect opportunity to engage a speaker who knows about overcoming uncontrollable obstacles.
**Tom Dempsey Endorsement**
Best known for his NFL record 63-yard field goal, this legendary place kicker helped the New Orleans Saints achieve one of only two wins in 1970, and achieve one of very few bright spots. The fact that this record still stands is a great Tom Dempsey endorsement of his skills as a place kicker.
