Summary, etc.:
Before his NFL career even started, John Elway was at the center of the craziest play in college football history; he threw a play so iconic in Super Bowl lore that it's played on highlight reels every January in the lead up to the game. Over the first 10 years of his professional career Elway led Denver to three Super Bowls, but lost in progressively worse fashion each time. Finally, after 15 years of perseverance, Elway led the Broncos to back-to-back championships. He won the Most Valuable Player award in his final Super Bowl game and then walked away from football. Within four years of quitting football he suffered personal tragedies and a difficult divorce. In search of redemption, Elway returned to football-- and spent eight years running the Colorado Crush of the Arena Football League. Cole shows that through it all, Elway has always put his passion for competition on display. -- adapted from jacket
