Invincible (2006) is a biographical drama directed by Ericson Core based on the story of Vince Papale, a 30-year-old school teacher/bartender who earns a spot on the 1976 Philadelphia Eagles NFL team when the new head coach, Dick Vermeil, holds open tryouts.
Ignore those who judge you based on your age and not your ability. You can, you should, and you must pursue your goals no matter your stage of life.
Dick Vermeil: “How long you been having trouble with this [car engine]?”
Vince Papale: “Since I bought it.”
Dick Vermeil: “I’m Dick Vermeil.”
Vince Papale: “Vince Papale.”
Dick Vermeil: “Vince. Pretty good workout you just turned in. Any idea how fast you were running?”
Vince Papale: “No, not really.”
Dick Vermeil: “That was a 4.5. This means you’re a heck of a lot faster than this car of yours. Where’d you play your college ball?”
Vince Papale: “I didn’t play college ball.”
Dick Vermeil: “Vince, you mind me asking you how old you are?”
Vince Papale: “No, I don’t mind. You mind me asking how old you are, coach?”
