Keynote Speaker 


Larry Brown - Super Bowl MVP


Cornerback Larry Brown played eight years in the NFL, five with the Dallas Cowboys. His highlight was being named MVP of Super Bowl XXX with two interceptions in Dallas’ 27-17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. A 12th round pick by the Cowboys in the 1991 draft, the 320th overall selection, Brown, who played at TCU, is part of the Dallas Cowboys Radio Network. Brown was in Oklahoma City to promote the NFL Fuel Up 60 program, which emphasizes kids need to eat a nutritious breakfast to start their day.

Mistress of Ceremonies

Ashley Goudeau

KVUE 24 Journalist

A Texas native, I grew up in Houston and attended Sam Houston State University in Huntsville. I studied broadcast journalism in the Dan Rather School of Communications and graduated cum laude. While at SHSU, I served as an anchor and reporter for KSHU Channel 7 News.

In 2006, I joined KIAH (CW) in Houston as an Assignment Editor. There I learned the ins and outs of how to operate a newsroom in a major market, shaping my news judgment.

A few months later in March 2007, I joined KCEN as a general assignment reporter. During my time in Central Texas I covered an array of subjects from the shooting rampage on Fort hood to the high profile murder case of former pastor Matt Baker to Baylor Sports.

In January 2012, I joined the KVUE News team as a general assignment reporter with a focus on Austin City Hall. I am proud to be a member of such a dedicated and fair news team.
