Born in poverty and told he wasn't college material, Floyd's uncommon will to succeed proved every naysayer wrong, from high school, military school, college, and the pros until he was finally recognized with induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010. Promises to Keep is a testament to pure heart, determination, and drive. A miraculous vision as a troubled young boy changed Floyd's path forever-transcending his life with a solemn promise that's fueled him throughout his zigzag journey. A master storyteller, Floyd recites his favorite tales from his first high school game to how General Douglas MacArthur tried to recruit him until The Express, Ernie Davis, convinced him to travel another road. Floyd also recounts stories about fellow Hall of Famers of his era: Dick Butkus, Mean Joe Greene, Willie Lanier, Gale Sayers, and Bobby Bell; Syracuse teammates Larry Csonka, Tom Coughlin, and the great John Mackey; as well as Broncos teammates Billy Thompson, Rich Jackson, Jerry Simmons, Charley Johnson, and Haven Moses. Plus, he speaks candidly about today's NFL stars: Tim Tebow, RGIII, Andrew Luck, Cam Newton, and Peyton Manning, and he addresses John Elway's new Broncos role.
