It will be several months before Buccaneers fans see Ronde Barber in action again, but fans can see the All-Pro cornerback speak at the University of South Florida with his twin brother and former New York Giants running back, Tiki, as part of the University Lecture Series at the University of South Florida Sun Dome on April 10 at 7:00 p.m.

During their professional careers, the Barber twins have distinguished themselves on and off the field with All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors, as well as their community work on literacy issues and other volunteer activities.

Both Barber brothers have served as national co-captains for the National Education Associations “Read Across America” literacy celebration and they have written three successful children’s books: By My Brothers’ Side, Teammates and Game Day.

Tickets are available to USF students, faculty, staff, alumni and the general public. Student tickets are free with a valid USF ID and are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Faculty, staff and USF alumni can purchase tickets for $3. General public admission is $8.
