Invincible: My Journey from Fan to NFL Team Captain by Vince Papale, Chad Millman

Invincible is the true story of Vince Papale, a down-on-his-luck teacher and part-time bartender lived every fan??s fantasy of moving from the stands to the field when he makes it onto his hometown??s professional football team during an open tryout. Papale was a 30-year-old NFL rookie and former school teacher/bartender who in 1976 tried out for and made the Philadelphia Eagles during Coach Dick Vermeils first season. Papale showed up at the tryout and ran a 4.5 second 40-yard dash, a world class time! Coach Vermeil offered him a contract on the spot, but this 30-year-old walk-on still had to make the team. Papale overcame tremendous odds and eventually became a team captain and played in the NFL for 4 years. His ???never say die??? attitude became the inspiration for turning the Eagles into a Super Bowl team. Invincible delves into Papale??s background, particularly that of his family, the mark that his family left on him, and how ultimately, it impacted his relationships with other people throughout his life.& nbsp; At its heart, Invincible is an underdog story that will inspire others to pursue their dreams, too.
