Inspirational person #8 - Rocky Bleier

Rocky Bleier was a football player in the 1970s for the Pittsburgh Steelers.  In 1968, after his rookie year, he served in the army in Vietnam.  He was shot in the thigh, and then a grenade blew up near him.  He was told he would never play football again.

But guess what? After being discharged, and walking in pain, for two years he worked hard , until he made the Steelers roster - and 1n 1976, he rushed for over 1,000.
