Ronnie Lott and Ryan Nece


For the 2018 Dad 2.0 Summit opening keynote, we’re tremendously proud and excited to welcome NFL Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott and his son, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Ryan Nece, one of a select few father/son duos to hold Super Bowl championship rings! They will take the stage Friday morning with journalist and author Josh Levs to share personal stories about life beyond football, remember some of their pivotal moments as fathers, and discuss some of the current issues/topics related to fatherhood, masculinity, and care in current society.

Husband, father, and Pro Football Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott won eight NFC Division titles and four Super Bowls with the San Francisco 49ers during his NFL career.

Husband and new dad to son Elijah, Ryan Nece signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2002 and was a part of the Super Bowl XXXVII Championship winning team. He founded the Ryan Nece Foundation in 2006 to create opportunities for teens to embrace the power of giving through volunteerism and inspirational leadership programs.
