Reid spoke on two panels on Saturday; the other focused on respect in the workplace, a hot issue after turmoil in the Miami Dolphins locker room last season and Michael Sam's entering the NFL as the first openly gay player. Reid was adamant about showing respect to every person, from the janitor to the owner.

"Lenny the Cool brought us a Super Bowl victory for those of us old enough to remember that," said state Sen. Paul LeVota, referring to Len Dawson, named Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl IV, when the Chiefs beat the Minnesota Vikings 23-7.
The Stadium Drive bridge over Interstate 435 will be named for Dawson, just as the Blue Ridge Cut-Off bridge over I-70 is named for George Brett, LeVota said.
