“See his knuckles”? “They’re white, that means he is coming at you.” “I’m sick of watching you get your butt kicked.” This quotation comes from one of Papale’s team mates shortly after they lose their first game. This information is very good advice and very useful in the sport football.
After going through the football camp, training, and making it through the cuts Vince Papale is starting to get used to the big leagues of football. Since he has admired this sport since he was a young child, he has put blood, sweat, and tears into this game.
When they lose to the cowboys they continue to not do so hot as a team. Vince Papale is on kickoff and his goal is to go down and tackle the guy with the ball. So in other words his goal is to get the ball back.
Suddenly the Eagles start to do fairly well and they end up making a new way for the used to be awful Eagles football team. The new way means that they are starting to do better and play as a team.
The one major play that the Vince Papale is known for is when on a kick he ran down after calling an audible and he hit the returner so hard he fumbled it. When he did that Vince snatched up the ball and ran it in for a touchdown.
Soon after this big game, Vince finds a lovely lady and marries her and happens to have kids. I bet that his previous wife feels pretty stupid for leaving.
This book was one of my personal favorites because it was about something I love to do. This book is so inspirational because it is a true story. I would recommend this book to anyone who knows or understands the sport of football. Because whether or not you play the sport this book is still great.
