Rocky Bleier was not very big and not very fast, but he was an incredibly determined athlete when the Steelers picked him late in the 1968 draft after a brilliant career at the University of Notre Dame. Before he could prove himself as a rookie, he was drafted again - this time, for combat duty in Vietnam.
A few months later, crippled by enemy rifle fire and grenade wounds in both legs, Rocky faced his biggest challenge. He could barely walk... he certainly couldn't run. To ever play professional football seemed impossible. But Rocky Bleier did the impossible. Rocky's special qualities have been recognized by colleagues as well as others who have honored him with awards too numerous to list in detail. Among them are the Whizzer White Humanitarian Award, the Vince Lombardi Award, and the Most Courageous Athlete of the Decade Award. He was also chosen as one of the Ten Outstanding Young Men of Year by the U.S. Jaycees.
Today, Rocky is in demand as a professional speaker, motivating audiences in a wide variety of organizations and corporations. Rocky sees parallels between the challenges he faced in the past and the challenges all business people face in today's crowded, competitive marketplace, and that is the central message he delivers. His presentation - Be the Best You Can Be - motivates audiences to keep on striving for greater accomplishments. Rocky is a dynamic speaker, using real life stories with a warm, self-reflective humor that audiences can relate to.
