DECORATED PROFESSIONAL CAREER
Vick entered the NFL as the first overall pick in 2001 with the Atlanta Falcons. Throughout his career, he impacted the game and the league with the unique aspects he brought to his position, creating a new path for future generations of quarterbacks.
In just five years with the Falcons, Vick reached three Pro Bowls (2002, 2004 and 2005) and led the team to two playoff appearances, including the NFC Championship in 2004. During his final season in Atlanta, Vick put on one of his best performances, breaking the single-season rushing record for a quarterback and becoming the first quarterback in NFL history to rush for 1,000 yards in a season.
Vick went on to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles, and in 2010 he gathered over 3,000 yards passing, nearing 700 yards rushing, all with a total of 30 touchdowns, earning the NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award and selection to his fourth Pro Bowl.
After his thirteenth season, and appearances with both the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers, Vick retired from the NFL in 2017 as the league’s all-time quarterback rushing leader with more than 6,100 yards on the ground, 22,000 yards in the air, and a career passer rating of 80.5 with 169 career touchdowns.
As a redshirt freshman, Vick carried the Virginia Tech Hokies to an undefeated season, and further to the Bowl Championship Series national title game. In 1999 he led the NCAA in passing efficiency, a record for a freshman (180.4) and third-highest all-time mark. Vick also won an ESPY Award as the nation’s top college player in addition to the first-ever Archie Griffin Award as college football’s most valuable player.
Michael Vick was born in Newport News, Virginia as the second of four children. Married to wife Kijafa, Vick is a proud father to four children.
