Mike Boryla, a former National Football League quarterback, is a playwright who lives in Colorado.

Michael J. Boryla was a quarterback for the Philadelpha Eagles in 1974-76 and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1978. He was an All-America at Stanford University. In the 1976 Pro Bowl he threw two touchdown passes in the final minutes of the game to lead the National Football Conference team to a 23-20 win.

He is a former attorney and former mortgage banker in Denver. He has recently morphed into a writer.

He is now a playwright gone rogue. In the last few years he has written seven plays: Long Ago And Far Away, Shannon's Hope, Ministers Of Satan, The Clone, Overtime, Black Oak and QB. His plays are all Nouveau Theatre.

Long Ago And Far Away will be staged sometime in 2013 by Inspire Creative at the PACE Theatre in Parker, Colorado.

He is happily married to Ann with four sons (Daniel, Tim, Pete and Ryan) and living small somewhere in Colorado. For the last 26 years he has been a director of Shannon's Hope, a Christian home for unwed mothers, which owns and operates a twelve bedroom and twelve bath house in Arvada, Colorado.

He is a serious student of the French language, French culture, French music and French theater. Where in the world did that come from? Oh well...

"Theater should never be harmless!"

A pro quarterback's confession

If I knew then what I know now: Confessions of a maverick pro quarterback

During my playing years, I knew that there was something wrong with pro football, but I couldn't put my finger on it. Our coaches tried to pretend that the team was a family. But it wasn't a family at all. It was a meat grinder.
