A little information about Eric: Eric Hipple, had an illustrious career, achieving two playoff bids and a divisional championship. He is currently ranked fifth in career passing yards for the team. However, tragedy struck in 2000 when his 15-year-old son, Jeff, took his own life. Since then, Eric has devoted his life to raising awareness and breaking down the stigma surrounding depressive illnesses. He has received prestigious awards for his impactful work, and his message of resilience has reached audiences worldwide through his workshops and book, “Real Men Do Cry,” which received a Presidential Award.
