Eagan Rotarian series #23

Rob Fagot, with a French family name pronounced "fah-go," grew up in Danville, Illinois. He played football for University of Kentucky at Lexington and has worked as a promotions account executive for Promotion Plus for 22 years. Rob and his wife live in Eagan with their four kids. A fellow Eagan Rotarian for 4 years, Rob is a good guy to know and an area football coach for 7th graders.


  1. Now, if THAT's not a clear case for a name change.
    George. Or Fred. Anything but "Rob"....

  2. Men and women who give their time to work with kids have my admiration!!

  3. Great shot... and I agree with "jb" :) I mean the constant ribbing he must have gotten on the football field.. "Look at that 'Rob' run!"

    (Yes.. we're all 8 year old kids on the inside.. all apologies)

  4. He looks like an interesting fellow. I'm sure he's run into some trouble over the years with his French surname. ;)

  5. Is this the same guy on the Love Connection? His appearance is viral on YouTube

    1. Sure looks like him.. The hometowns match also...

  6. Fagot is rather an odd name...

  7. Yep, that's Robert Fagot formerly of Danville, IL. He was on the show in about 1985 and was nice enough not to correct Chuck Woolery for mispronouncing his name.
