Gary Pinkel is a former University of Missouri Tigers College Football Head Coach. Born in Akron, Ohio, Pinkel graduated from Kenmore High School and attended Kent State University where he played tight end for the Golden Flashes. Pinkel holds the record as the winningest coach in the history of the University of Missouri. Arriving at Mizzou for the 2001 season, Pinkel led the Tigers to ten bowl games in 15 years winning six! Pinkel’s other accomplishments while at Mizzou include ending the Tigers 24-year losing streak to Nebraska in 2003 with a 41-24 win in Columbia. In 2007, the season's most memorable moment came when Missouri defeated their rival Kansas 36–28 on a nationally televised game at Arrowhead Stadium. The win propelled Missouri to the No. 1 ranking and ruined Kansas' previously unbeaten record.

Jim (James) Hart was raised just outside of Chicago. Hart’s stepfather inspired him to play sports. At the age of 13, while at Niles West High School in Skokie, Hart started playing football as a quarterback. He received a football scholarship to play for Southern Illinois University – Carbondale for the Salukis from 1963-65. In 1966, Hart started his career with the St. Louis Cardinals Football Team, and from 1974-76 Hart guided the Cardinals to three straight ten-plus-win seasons along with back-to-back division crowns in 74 and 75, leading the Cardiac Cards to ten game-winning drives during that three year span. In the  1977 Pro Bowl, Hart threw five interceptions, the most in the Pro Bowls history. Hart was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in 1998 for his contribution to the sport of football.

Cam (Cameron) Janssen, former St. Louis Blues Hockey Player, grew up in the St. Louis suburb of Eureka, Missouri, where he attended Eureka High School for three years. During his sophomore and junior years, Janssen played for the St. Louis Sting. In 2001, Janssen was selected in the third round of the Ontario Hockey League draft by the Windsor Spitfires. Instead of completing his senior year at Eureka, Janssen moved to Windsor, Ontario to begin his season with the Spitfires. In February of 2008, Janssen was traded to his hometown team, the St. Louis Blues, and made his debut wearing #55 against the Phoenix Coyotes. Cam Janssen is now an on-air talent at 590 AM The Fan. You can listen to Cam Janssen, T.J. Moe, and Eric Messersmith during their show “The Hardline” Monday through Thursday from 1-3 pm on 590 AM.
