About the Author

Joe Theismann is a household name, having built his reputation playing quarterback. A collegiate All-American in football and academics, he graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1971 before embarking on a fifteen-year professional career, twelve with the Washington Redskins in the NFL. An entrepreneur at heart, after a career-ending injury in 1985, Joe leveraged his knowledge and expertise as an elite athlete into two decades as an NFL analyst on ESPN and The Sports Network. His accomplishments include being runner-up for the Heisman Trophy in 1971, earning the NFL’s most valuable player (MVP) award in 1983, the year he led his team to a victory in Superbowl XVII, holder of multiple Redskins records— passing yardage (25,206), completions (2,044), and attempts (3,602)—being selected to the Pro Bowl twice, earning the Pro Bowl MVP award once, and being named 1982 NFL Man of the Year for community service and his commitment to the health and welfare of children. In 2003, he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame and in 2013 received the Walter Camp Foundation “Distinguished American” Award. All these achievements can be traced back to his infectious positive spirit, which uplifts and improves the lives of those around him.
