The University released the following description of the former Utah Jazz center:

“Eaton’s rags-to-riches tale is the stuff of legend. At age 21, he was working as anauto mechanic in California when an assistant basketball coach from Cypress Junior College met him while picking up a car and encouraged him to try out for the team.

Despite his 7-foot-4-inch stature, Eaton had never been much of a basketball player. He went on to play two seasons at the University of California, Los Angeles, before being drafted into the NBA in 1982. He spent 12 years with the Utah Jazz before retiring from the game due to injury.

The NBA All-Star has reinvented himself as a business leader, entrepreneur, and radio and TV personality. During his visit to the River Region, he will reveal the secrets that skyrocketed him to fame as the two-time Defensive Player of the Year and enabled him to break the NBA record for the most blocked shots in a single season.”

Watch Mark Eaton speaking about his interaction with NBA Legend Wilt Chamberlain.

Mark Eaton is a retired NBA player who played for the Utah Jazz (1982-1993), with one NBA All-Star selection in 1989, & two NBA Defensive Player of the Year awards in 1985 & 1989. Today Eaton is a business leader and radio and TV personality.
