Rocky Bleier’s life story – a gripping tale of courage on both the football fields of America and the battle fields of Vietnam – has held audiences in rapt attention for years. Yet, the motivational message behind it, detailing how ordinary people can become extraordinary achievers, defines success in the new American century.
With the same optimism, sense of humor and steadfast determination that were his trademarks as a Pittsburgh Steelers running back, Rocky Bleier takes audiences from his early years through his professional career and talks about the lessons he learned along the way….lessons that we all can benefit from.
Not falling within the ideal of what a running back should look like, Bleier had to run harder and play smarter to be able to stand out. Despite his drive and ability to make the big play, the Pittsburgh Steelers only considered him a late round pick. But before the season ended that first year, he was drafted again…this time by the United States Army. At the height of the Vietnam War, Bleier was thrust into combat early and was seriously wounded when his platoon ran into an ambush. Receiving wounds from both rifle fire and grenade fragments in his legs, he was barely able to walk and his professional football career seemed to have ended before it began.
For more than two years, he drove himself. Little by little, he overcame obstacles and fought his way back. He not only made the
Pittsburgh Steelers, but also eventually became a starting running back on a team that won four Super Bowls and became the greatest football team of the 20th century.
The hard lessons Rocky Bleier learned early in his life that helped him overcome adversity and reach his goals, have paid off after football. Some of those lessons are seen between the lines in the popular book on his life, “Fighting Back,” and an ABC-TV movie of the week by the same name.

3/12 Client Reference: “Just wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know that Rocky was absolutely amazing both from a personal and professional standpoint. He made the point to meet and connect with as many people as possible and his address was absolutely spot-on and supportive of our theme. It was the right way to kick-off our meeting and we had many attendees comment that he was perhaps the best guest speaker ever. I’m certainly a fan now! Thanks for the assistance and for helping to make our event successful.” -Regards, Chris
You were 100% correct in recommending Rocky Bleier no matter what age he was addressing. He was absolutely incredible. I have attended many events where there was a guest speaker, never have I heard anyone get his message across to everyone in such a meaningful and entertaining way. He captivated the audience and I can promise you, everyone now knows who Rocky Bleier is no matter what age they are. After his speech he spent an hour mingling with my people, taking photos and signing autographs. Thank you so much for making me look like a genius by selecting Rocky as our guest speaker. ~ BZ 2015
