Born in the United States, Michael Strahan’s family moved to Germany when he was nine years old. After his junior year in high school, Michael’s father wanted him to play football with the hope that he would get a scholarship. So he sent him back to the United States to live with his uncle and go to school in Houston. Michael lasted one semester and returned to Germany to finish out high school. He was offered a scholarship from Texas Southern University, which he accepted. By his senior year he was setting records. In 1993, he was drafted by the New York Giants. With many record–breaking plays over his career, in 2008 he retired from playing football after a Super Bowl win against the New England Patriots. He still remains close to the field as an NFL commentator on FOX and is co–host on Live with Kelly and Michael. The father of four children, Michael’s love for kids sparked him to start the Michael Strahan Foundation. Learn about this popular man, who never takes anything for granted.
