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.
