The Valley Church in Troy to host Bobby Carpenter


For the Miami Valley Today

TROY — The Valley Church, 916 N. Market Street, in Troy is gearing up for a huge Super Bowl Sunday known as “Football Sunday,” on Feb. 13 at both the 9:15 a.m. and 11 a.m. services, which will feature Bobby Carpenter, who played linebacker on the 2002 National Championship team at Ohio State and then was a first round draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys and played seven seasons in the NFL.

After finishing his NFL career, Carpenter returned to Ohio State’s Fisher School of Business in the Fall of 2013 to pair an MBA in finance and strategy with his undergraduate degree in economics. Now, he teaches a finance class at the Fisher College of Business and is a co-host on 97.1 The Fan and has been a color analyst for ESPN 3 since 2017.

Carpenter and his wife are the parents of four children, whom they raise in central Ohio. At his core, he is a competitive guy with Midwestern values. According to Carpenter, “Faith, family and sports are my passions, and I am blessed to live them everyday.”

Those attending the services on Football Sunday are being encouraged to wear their favorite team colors or team jersey. Before and after the services, there will be indoor tailgating including chili and hot dogs, face painting for the children, as well as giveaways, including a grill at each service.

The event is open to the public, and there is no charge.
