MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

Actor Terry Crews stopped by the Permian Basin on Thursday evening.

The former NFL player is known for playing the funny guy and his Old Spice commercials.

But his purpose on Thursday night was to inspire, even stopping by the Chris Kyle Memorial Plaza.

Crews gave a lecture at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center, titled, "Humor in Leadership," saying when things looks like it's over, that could just mean it is only the beginning.

The actor even took some time to reminisce about the day he got drafted into the NFL.          

"What was so crazy, I thought the draft was over but it was not. It was not. I got drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in the 11th round and this is proof positive that you can't call something over. Nothing is truly over. It just may not have happened when you wanted it to. It turned to one of the worst days of my life to the best," said Crews.

The lecture was organized by John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute.
