Chicago Bears Super Bowl Champion, Gary Fencik, will be visiting with students and other guests at a special event happening at Barrington High School tomorrow night. He’s returning to his high school alma mater to share the lessons he’s learned in life, both on and off the football field.
Gary Fencik was the Chicago Bears’ all-time leader in interceptions and total tackles and was the team’s defensive captain during the 1985 Super Bowl championship season.
His academic and business background is additionally impressive. He graduated from Northwestern and Yale Universities and is currently a partner and head of business development for Adams Street Partners, a global private equity investment management firm in Chicago.
The program will begin at 7 p.m. at Barrington High School tomorrow night, Monday, March 11, 2013.
Tickets are available, at no cost, for children and students. The cost for adults to attend is $25 and reservations are appreciated.
A more intimate reception will follow the program at the Barrington Country Bistro where guests will be able to meet Gary Fencik. The cost for the reception is $100 and includes the program.
The event is part of the Barrington 220 Educational Foundation’s Alumni Legends program, where they showcase noteworthy Barrington High School graduates.
The foundation is a not-for-profit, volunteer organization that finds the funds for initiatives that enhance learning but are not otherwise supported by tax revenues.

And for a little blast from the past of the very best kind, we can’t help but revisit the Super Bowl Shuffle and fast forward to Gary Fencik, between the “Sackman” and the “Fridge”, dropping these famous lyrics:
“It’s Gary here, and I’m Mr.Clean. They call me “hit man”. Don’t know what they mean. They throw it long and watch me run, I’m on my man, one-on-one. Buddy’s guys cover it down to the bone, That’s why they call us the 46 zone. Come on everybody let’s scream and yell, We’re goin’ to do the Shuffle, Then ring your bell.”
