Alan C. Page: Profile
Alan Page was a professional football player for 14 years. Today, as a lawyer and judge, the former Minnesota Viking and Chicago Bear seeks to lead by example, as his parents did for him, his brother and two sisters. Howard and Georgianna Page were the most influential people in his life, Page said. His father worked at many different jobs, and his mother worked as an attendant at a country club in Canton, Ohio. Page said his parents understood clearly that their children needed an education if they were to move ahead in the world. "Sometimes we get so caught up in looking for the big example, we lose sight of people who, in their daily lives, stand up for what they believe," Page said. "My parents were just ordinary people, but in their convictions their efforts, they were people of real conscience."
