There is so much coverage of this elite group that it can be tempting to skim through the articles, but you might want to check the byline first.

Last year, the ESPN The Magazine features writer wrote stories about Michael Vick's prison experience and Matt Ryan's quest to become the best. "I saw a little of myself in Matt Ryan," says Wickersham, who was born in Boulder, Colorado, and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. "I think I'm good at what I do and I want to be great at it."
