Michael Strahan: How to Overcome Self Doubt
Michael Strahan Hall of Fame Speech
Michael Strahan - NYU Commencement Speach
Emmy winner and Super Bowl Champion Michael Strahan is the co-host of top-rated entertainment talk show “LIVE with Kelly and Michael.” He also serves as special co-host for leading morning program, “Good Morning America,” and as an Emmy-nominated analyst for “Fox NFL Sunday.”
Prior to joining the ranks of the top sports broadcasters in the country, Strahan’s entire 15-year football career was typified by the charisma and sportsmanship that made him a seven-time Pro-Bowler and one of only four players ever to lead the NFL in sacks for two seasons. His spectacular NFL career resulted in Strahan being named to the 2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame class, the sport’s highest honor.
Strahan lead the New York Giants to a dramatic Super Bowl victory over the previously undefeated New England Patriots in 2007. In 2001, Strahan completed what is widely considered to be one of the greatest seasons ever for a defensive player, breaking the 18-year-old NFL single season sack record with 22.5 sacks. His record still stands today. The charismatic leader of the New York Giants was named the NFL’s 2001 Player of the Year by Sports Illustrated and the 2001 Defensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press, making him the first New York Giant to win the award since Lawrence Taylor.
Strahan and co-host Kelly Ripa were the co-winners of the 2015 Daytime Emmy for “Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host.” In addition, Strahan was nominated for a 2014 Sports Emmy Award in the category of “Outstanding Sports Personality – Studio Analyst.”
Strahan just released: “Wake Up Happy: The Dream Big, Win Big Guide to Transforming Your Life,” which will includes personal stories and motivational advice to inspire readers to turn up the heat and go from good to great in pursuit of their personal ambitions. This book is on Amazon’s #1 New Release list.
With a natural affinity for people and an effortless ease in front of the camera, Strahan’s previous hosting duties include “Pros v. Joes,” which pitted amateur contestants against professional athletes in a series of athletic feats. Strahan co-hosted the family cable show “Backyard Stadiums” on DIY Network and built outdoor recreational projects with his co-host. In addition, he participated in the kid-friendly show “Giants on Deck” and the YES Network show “Sack and Renovate,” in which he led a guided tour inside his 100-year-old home. Strahan also tackled the world of scripted network primetime television as the star of “Brothers,” a 30-minute sitcom on Fox from Sony Pictures Television. This summer, Strahan made a cameo appearance in the hit film “Magic Mike XXL.”
Dedicated to many charitable works, Strahan donates his hands and heart to numerous charities including St. Jude Children’s hospital, The USO and Cedar Sinai’s Sports Spectacular.
Michael Strahan was a vocal and visible leader among the athletic community in the aftermath of the World Trade Center tragedy. As the player representative for the Giants, Strahan led the charge in calling for the league to cancel its games following the event.
Born in Houston, Texas, Strahan spent most of his youth in Germany, where his father Gene was stationed in the U.S. Army. Strahan returned to the U.S. for a portion of high school and soon was recruited to play football at Texas Southern University. As a senior at Texas Southern, Strahan was selected first team All-America by the Associated Press when he recorded a school-record 19 sacks and 62 tackles, 32 of which cost opposing teams 142 yards in combined losses.
