He never should have made it in the NFL... Growing up, Blake Moore never really dreamed of playing professional football. Sure, he watched the NFL stars on TV on Sundays, and pretended to be one of them in pickup games with his friends. And of course he had a Minnesota Vikings Purple People Eaters poster in his room-didn't everyone? Blake thought of himself as just an ordinary kid with no special athletic skills or size or speed. But to play in the NFL one day? Monday Night Football? The Super Bowl? In front of tens of thousands of fans and a TV audience of millions?

Through a Pigskin Prism is the story of how a professional football career became a reality-however unplanned or unexpected. This memoir gives the reader an inside look at one player's unusual path to the NFL, and his experiences playing in the NFL for six seasons-a life viewed through the unique prism of football. Blake Moore is living proof that dreams do come true sometimes-even if you aren't sure it ever was your dream!

About the Author

Blake Moore grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and like thousands of other kids in America, played football from an early age. He excelled in high school, and then at a small college in Ohio, the College of Wooster. Undrafted, he defied the odds and played for six seasons in the NFL, for the Cincinnati Bengals and the Green Bay Packers. Mr. Moore went on to earn his law degree at Harvard, and has enjoyed a successful 20-year career as an executive in the investment management business. He and his wife of over 33 years have two grown children and a granddaughter.
