About Michael Vick
Michael Vick is a professional American football player in the National Football League (NFL), holding the distinction as the first ever quarterback of African-American descent that was taken first overall in the NFL Draft in 2001. His tenure with his original team led him to wide recognition, leading the Atlanta Falcons to two playoff appearances and was a three-time Pro Bowl selectee.
Downfall and Comeback
Vick’s strong career is stained with numerous run-ins with the law. Most known and publicized of which is the implication for his direct involvement in an illegal dog fighting ring taking place in his property. Vick was sentenced to three years in prison for his involvement. His career would not be halted by his crimes, though, as he would later make a successful comeback in the NFL, earning three separate Comeback Player of the Year awards in 2010.

Famous quotes by Michael Vick
I have always been an outstanding football player, I have always had uncanny abilities, great arm strength, an immense ability to play the game from a quarterback standpoint. The problem was that I wasn't given the liberty to do certain things when I was young.Michael Vick
I mean, I was just one of the ones who got exposed, and because of the position I was in, where I was in my life, it went mainstream. A lot of people got out of it after my situation, not because I went to prison but because it was sad for them to see me go through something that was so pointless, that could have been avoided.Michael Vick
That wasn't the way that things was supposed to be. And all because the so-called culture that I thought was right, that I thought it was cool, and I thought it was fun, and it was exciting at the time. It all led to me laying in a prison bunk by myself with no one to talk to but myself.Michael Vick
