Pat Tillman

The story of Pat Tillman will live on for generations. After a successful college football career at Arizona State University, Tillman was drafted to the Arizona Cardinals where he played for several seasons. But that all changed on 9/11. Tillman turned down a $3.6 million contract and enlisted in the Army to defend his country.

As a member of the Army Rangers, Tillman served several tours in combat before he was killed in the mountains of Afghanistan at the age of 27.
