Michael Vick Biography

Michael Vick Jereys

You're not alone if you think Michael Vick is part man and part machine. With a rocket for an arm, and turbo boosters in his legs, the Atlanta Falcons' quarterback is setting the NFL on fire.

Michael Vick Biography - Growing Up
Michael Vick was born June 26, 1980 in Newport News, Virginia. Vick's father began teaching him the fundamentals of football when he was just three years old. Although he is right-handed, he started throwing the football with his left hand, which he still does today. Michael Vick was a football star at Warwick High School, where he played against future NBA star, Allen Iverson, who also played high school football in Virginia.

Michael Vick Biography - College Years
Michael Vick began playing college football at Virginia Tech in 1998. He led the Hokies to the National Championship Game against Florida State in 1999 and finished his college career with an amazing 20-1 record as a starter. His outstanding speed, arm strength, and ability to elude tackles led the Atlanta Falcons to pick him first overall in the 2001 NFL draft.

Michael Vick Biography - Turning Pro
After playing as a backup in his rookie year, Michael Vick became the Falcons' starter in 2002 and was one of front runners to win the NFL MVP award. His most mind-boggling and exciting performance of the season came on December 1, 2002 in a 30-24 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. He scored two touchdowns and ran for an NFL record-breaking 173 yards - including a 46 yard dash in overtime to give the Falcons the victory. After the game, the NFL took Michael's running shoes so they could be displayed at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. You can bet that Michael will be joining his shoes in the Hall of Fame, once he retires. After missing most of 2003 with injuries, Michael Vick has returned to superstar form in 2004 and has led the Falcons to the top of the NFC's South division.
