Mitchell & Ness Bills #12 Jim Kelly Blue 35th Anniversary Patch Stitched Throwback NFL Jersey

The inaugural All-Mohawk Valley All-Stars awards banquet will feature Hall of Fame NFL quarterback Jim Kelly as the guest speaker wholesale authentic nfl jerseys.

The banquet will be held from 6-9 p.m. June 19 at the Jorgensen Center at MVCC. All-Mohawk Valley athletes will attend for free. The event is open to friends, family and the general public.

“We’re excited to bring Jim Kelly to Utica,” Observer-Dispatch Publisher Terry Cascioli said. “We feel so strongly that he not only is someone who can relate to our student-athlete population, but someone our attendees will realize is so much more than a professional football Hall of Famer. Jim is a Hall of Famer in life!”

A cancer survivor who famously guided the Buffalo Bills to four straight Super Bowls in the 1990s, Kelly will help the Observer-Dispatch honor the accomplishments of All-Mohawk Valley All-Stars from Madison, Herkimer and Oneida Counties. Male and female athletes of the year in each sport will be announced at the banquet.

“As a player, Jim Kelly did what no other quarterback has ever done before or since,” Observer-Dispatch Sports Editor Matthew Becker said. “As a person, he has faced tragedy and obstacles with courage and determination that few possess. For sports fans, this is an opportunity to hear from one of the best to ever play the game. For everyone, this is an opportunity to be inspired.”

Fall all-star selections will receive letters on how to claim their free ticket within a few weeks. Winter and spring selections will receive letters soon after. The All-Mohawk Valley All-Stars awards banquet is presented by the O-D and sponsored by Accelerate Sports and Chanatry’s Hometown Market.

“These sports-focused youths will spawn tomorrow’s good leaders,” said Mark Chanatry, President of Chanatry’s Hometown Market. “These leaders are who the country needs and will depend on.”

Kelly spent his entire 11-year NFL career in Buffalo. He remains the only quarterback to play in four consecutive Super Bowls, guiding the Bills to the championship game against the New York Giants (1991), Washington (1992) and Dallas (1993 and 1994). He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2002.

Kelly is a supporter of Krabbe disease research, establishing Hunter’s Hope in 1997 after his son, Hunter, was diagnosed with the illness shortly after his birth, to support families affected by the disease. Hunter passed away at 8 years old as a result of the disease in 2005.

In 2013, Kelly was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in his upper jaw. The cancer was removed, but returned in 2014 before he beat it again in August 2014. Kelly was infected with MRSA later that year in November. The infection was removed in weeks later.
