Though many today know Michael Strahan for his hosting gig on “GMA” and “The $100,000 Pyramid,” he got his start in the National Football League (NFL)
As the defensive end for the New York Giants, he played for the team for 14 seasons and even helped them take home the Super Bowl in 2007 (Any Giants fan knows that this is an achievement in itself.)
He also, according to Celebrity Net Worth, holds the record for the most sacks in a single season and holds the distinction of being a two-time NFC Champion and the 2001 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. In 2014, Michael Strahan was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
With so many accomplishments just as a football player — to say nothing of his accomplishments in the TV space — it’s no wonder that Michael Strahan has earned an impressive estimated $65 million net worth.
Recently, too, AfroTech reported that Michael Strahan was going into space on Jeff Bezos’ third historic Blue Origin flight.
“Blue Origin – they approached me and they asked if I wanted to be a crew member and without hesitation, I said ‘yes,’” Strahan said on “Good Morning America.“
He continued: “I wanted to go to space! It’s going to take a while, but I do believe it will bring a lot of technological breakthroughs and also innovations to us here on earth…and I just wanted to be a part of it.”
The flight is scheduled to launch on Dec. 9.
But before he goes where no (well, very few) men have gone before, let’s take a look at Strahan’s Earthly accomplishments — and how his children are continuing his legacy.
