When No. 33 blew the whistle, 22 giant men on the field and thousands of fans paid attention to what the man behind the number had to say. And when No. 33 - the “Pro-on-the-GO” - speaks, audiences laugh, and listen in rapt attention. NFL's official No. 33 is Art Holst, a man with a rich background in business, sports and civic affairs.
Mr. Holst has been a soldier, a salesman, a businessman, and a civic leader as well as a football official. He's packed a "heap of living" in his life and he tells about it in his fascinating presentations.
