Product Overview

Football fans everywhere know of Dan's amazing NFL career and his dozens of league records, but little is publicly known about the early path he took on his road to superstardom. Where the Dream Began chronicles Dan's formative years growing up in Pittsburgh, starring in both football and baseball for Central Catholic High School, and his All-American career at the University of Pittsburgh. The rare video footage is accentuated by present-day interviews with Dan and several of his coaches and teammates as they all reflect on the beginning stages of what ultimately became one of the greatest careers in NFL history.

From The Publisher:
Being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame was only a matter of time for Dan Marino. With that stage in his career now behind him (Marino was inducted on Aug. 7, 2005), he is able to reflect on his entire career in his own words and by sharing his own private photographs and videos from his family collection.

Dan Marino: My Life in Football by Dan Marino with David Hyde takes fans into the private life of arguably the greatest quarterback to ever play the game. In addition to his own personal reflections, stories and anecdotes from his playing days at Central Catholic (Pa.) High, the University of Pittsburgh and, of course, with the Miami Dolphins, Marino shares some of his most private moments with his family, friends and behind the scenes of some of the more exciting and unusual moments that he's been able to enjoy.

Hundreds of vibrant, full-color photographs accompany a specially-produced DVD that is available only with this book. Where the Dream Began is the exclusive DVD that contains never-before-seen footage of Marino's high school and college playing days in addition to interviews with former teammates and coaches that aims to explain the 'how' and 'why' behind the genesis of Marino's amazing talent.

Dan Marino: My Life in Football will reveal for fans some of the stories behind Marino's career that they never knew before.

Dan Marino: My Life in Football provides every fan unprecedented access to the Hall of Fame quarterback's life. From hearing stories directly from Marino to seeing how the quarterback lives with his family and friends, no other book offers the insight into Marino's life that this one does.
