Vince Papale Agency Booking Profile
In 1976, Vince Papale was working as a schoolteacher and a part-time bartender. Philadelphia Eagles’ then-rookie head coach Dick Vermeil held a press conference and invited locals, including Papale, who was a former track star, to a workout. The rest is history. Papale showed up at the workout and ran a 4.5 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. Overcoming tremendous odds to become the oldest rookie in the history of the NFL, Papale eventually became a team captain and played in the NFL for four years. Not only that, but he was voted Man of the Year by the Eagles in 1978, for his many charitable activities and honored by the NFL. His “never-say-die” attitude became the inspiration for turning the Eagles into a Super Bowl team. A unique path to the top has helped make Papale a unique and engaging sports speaker, do not hesitate booking Vince Papale today by calling a Vince Papale booking agent to get a proposal. Vince Papale’s inspirational journey from humble working-class beginnings and troubled home life to successful professional athlete and businessman is a story that appeals to audiences from all walks of life. His story is the subject of a book and a major motion picture from Disney titled Invincible. The hit film was released in August 2006, starring Mark Wahlberg as Papale and Greg Kinnear as Eagles coach Dick Vermeil. His new book, Be Invincible in Changing Times: A Playbook for Winning No Matter What Life Throws at You, was released in 2011. It includes Papale’s own story as well as others about people who battled adversity and won. Call SME today for booking Vince Papale as a keynote speaker, with us as the Vince Papale booking agency.
