In 1976, Vince Papale, then 30, became the oldest non-kicking rookie in NFL history when he made the Philadelphia Eagles in an open try-out.

Papale, who will deliver the keynote presentation at the 8th Annual Closets & Home Organization Conference & Expo, Feb. 15-17 in Austin, TX, went on to distinguish himself as a special teams player extraordinaire on both sides of the ball. His personal story of triumph of the will was retold in the 2006 Disney blockbuster movie, "Invincible," starring Mark Wahlberg as Papale.
