Media, Pa., April 5, 2018 – Former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver, author and motivational speaker Vince Papale will share his against all odds story and his inspiring new book The Last Laugh: Vision to Victory at the Delaware County Press Club’s April 18th luncheon at Lazaretto Ballroom, 99 Wanamaker Avenue, Essington, Pa.

In 1976, Papale, a 30-year-old Interboro teacher, high school coach, part-time bartender and die-hard Eagles fan, achieved his lifelong dream of playing for the Philadelphia Eagles. He was voted Special Teams Captain by his teammates earning Eagles “Man of the Year” in 1978 for his numerous charitable activities.  His story was the basis for Walt Disney Pictures stirring football drama, Invincible, starring Mark Wahlberg.

Vince Papale

The ultimate underdog continues to be an inspiration off the field. Papale and his former teammate, Dennis Franks, have written a book together called The Last Laugh: Vision to Victory. The Last Laugh: Vision to Victory is part memoir and part success guide. The former NFL players turned entrepreneurs share lessons learned and obstacles conquered during their years in the NFL. They show how they applied those lessons to their respective business careers after they hung up their helmets.

Vince continues to hold the record for being the oldest rookie in the National Football League (kickers excluded).
