LYNCHBURG, Va. - Former NFL and Virginia Tech player Michael Vick will speak at Liberty University's Convocation next week, the school announced Monday. 

Vick was recently inducted into the Virginia Tech Hall of Fame and is now a Fox Sports NFL analyst. 

In 2007, Vick had pleaded guilty to dogfighting and ended up serving 19 months in prison. He says he has renewed his relationship with God since then and has addressed Congress to help pass the Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act. 

LU is describing Vick's story as one of forgiveness and redemption. 

Vick will speak at Convocation on Monday, January 29.
