ESPN President: Tuskegee Commencement Address a ‘Profound’ Experience

When John Skipper was invited by Tuskegee University President Brian Johnson to give the commencement speech to the school’s 2017 graduating class, the president of ESPN wanted his first visit to the campus to include some of the pomp and circumstance of the renowned historically black university.

“I asked for some Ball and Parlay,” Skipper said, referring to the popular hype song that has been played at Tuskegee football games and events since the mid-1980s.
