Brett Favre

For a kid who grew up pitching baseballs for five years on his high school varsity team, its surprising that Brett Favre would spend his college and professional careers playing football. Favre is considered one of the best football players in NCAA history. Drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in 1991 and by the Green Bay Packers one year later, he has become one of the most notable football players in the NFL.

Life hasnt been easy for this successful quarterback. An addiction to prescription painkillers, deaths of family members, destruction from hurricanes, and his wifes battle with cancer prove that even the greatest heroes have their struggles. Yet despite family tragedies and more than seventeen years worth of multiple injuries, Favre has managed to stay strongmentally and physically.

Read the story of a legend, from birth through his tearful NFL retirement!
