Moritz Boehringer has one of the coolest stories in the NFL. Boehringer is German. He didn't get into American football until he was 17 years old when he happened to watch a Youtube video of Adrian Peterson in action. He started playing and had dreams of playing in the NFL.
Fast forward to the 2016 NFL Draft and Boehringer just made history by getting signed by his favorite NFL team, the Minnesota Vikings. He is the first player in the history of the NFL to ever be signed directly from Europe.
Pretty amazing story. Dreams can come true. You just have to believe and put in the work.
