Roger Craig

Roger Craig is a legendary San Fransisco 49er running back who has benefitted from chiropractic for many years. He is speaking at California Jam 2018, thanks to our friends at VoxxLife.

In his rookie year in 1983, he scored a combined 12 touchdowns rushing and receiving, as the 49ers reached the NFC Championship game. Craig became well known in his rookie year for his distinctive high-knee running technique. In Super Bowl XIX in January 1985, Craig rushed for 58 yards, caught seven passes for 77 yards, and became the first player ever to score three touchdowns in a Super Bowl during the 49ers’ 38–16 victory over the Miami Dolphins.

In 1988, Craig was named NFL Offensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press. He ran for a career high 1,502 yards and caught an additional 76 passes for 534 yards. A memorable game occurred in week 7 against the Los Angeles Rams. He scored three rushing touchdowns and ran a career high 191 yards. He went on to assist the 49ers to Super Bowl XXIII by amassing 262 combined rushing and receiving yards and two touchdowns in their two playoff games. In the 49ers’ 20-16 win over Cincinnati in that Super Bowl, he rushed for 71 yards and caught eight passes for 101 yards.

He was the first running back to gain more than 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving in the same season (1987). Since then, only one other running back has achieved the same feat (Marshall Faulk in 1999). Craig also caught a then-record 92 passes in the 1985 campaign. In 1988, Craig set a then-franchise record 1,502 yards rushing. The 1988 season was the second time Craig broke the 2,000 combined yardage mark in his career.

Craig is married to Vernessia (high school sweetheart) and has five children Damesha, Rometra, Rogdrick, Alexander and Nia- Jai. Roger currently works in marketing at Tibco Software in Palo Alto, California. Craig is an avid runner and has participated in numerous marathons. He was the Grand Marshal for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Infineon Raceway.

Why Cal Jam? A Letter from the Founder - TBT October 2013

The number one “WHY” of Cal Jam is to keep this great profession pure and unsullied, to preserve our great philosophy and principles and keep us drug free!!! That was one of the main reasons I went to chiropractic school, because it was a DRUG FREE healing profession.

One of the main WHYs of Cal Jam is to introduce to the world REAL principle-based chiropracTIC, not an allopathic back pain model. As a teenager I went to huge event called California Jam where 250,000 people gathered to celebrate great music. After going to Dynamic Essentials in the late 80’s and literally having Sid Williams change my chiropractic destiny, I was motivated to take that D.E. energy and elevate to the next level with live music.

Now, after 6 years, our Cal Jam vision not only includes chiropractic as the centerpiece, but we also want to shed light on other issues that plague the health of humans and planet earth in the future. The goal is to create an eclectic health festival with music to attract the general public to the event. This is my first year really opening up the schedule to not only the chiropractic story, but also nutrition, exercise, GMOs, Geo Engineering, Natural Child Birth, Vaccines, Fluoride, Breast Health etc. This year will sell out the 3,000 seat Segerstrom Center for the Arts and it will be the largest premiere chiropractic event on the planet.

As this event continues to grow both in size and financial support it is our goal to attract not only bigger sponsors but also bigger, more popular bands (i.e. Red Hot Chili Peppers or Black Crows). With more prominent popular bands our ability to draw larger crowds will be enhanced.

Cal Jam also hosts a black tie Speakers Gala where you can mingle in full elegance at the Center Club with our rockstar speakers. Saturday is the best party EVER thrown in the chiropractic profession with the band Boogie Knights. Costumes and wigs are optional. Sunday is 5 hours of X-ray, if needed.

If sustainability of pure principled chiropractic, getting the big idea to the world and sustainability of the planet and human race resonates with you, you will love Cal Jam. If celebrating the coolest profession and celebrating in a rock n roll party atmosphere tickles your fancy, then this event is right up your alley. Hope to see you there so we can collectively get chiropractic to the world and save the planet.

Love, BillyD
