Captain For Life
Since the passing of former NFL player Junior Seau, I as well as many other former football players have been asked by many media sources to express our opinions on Junior's suicide, playing the game, the safety of football as well as other questions like "would you do it all again" or "would you want your own child to play football?" The opinions and responses have been wide ranging with some players emphatically challenging others if they sided against allowing their children to play. But, in the midst of doing these interviews some media sources have taken the editorial liberty to "sensationalize" interviews by taking my comments out of context.
I have my own clear and definitive opinions of my football experiences that I have expressed in my book "Captain for Life". Long before writing the first word of the book, I had many years to ponder those questions before the public and football fans began to hear of players like Junior Seau or a Dave Duerson committing suicide. So, to avoid future misunderstandings or misleading features, I am sharing an extended excerpt from the final chapter of "Captain" to answer any questions parents, fans or the media might have on my positions.

A Message From Harry
Captain is my own first person narrative and personal journey through my early years, my 21 year football
career and life after football. It is my personal account of injuries sustained
playing the game and specifically concussions I gave and received as a football
player and my experiences living with the lingering after effects.

1986 New York Giants
25th Anniversary Celebration
The 1986 Team Reunion was in the words of Maurice Carthon "the best weekend of my life!" Bill Belichick called our Reunion Weekend an "unbelieveable, awesome experience that all of us will remember for the rest of our lives!" 51 of the 53 players and 8 of the 11 coaches including Parcells and Belichick participated in the event. For many of us it was fun to reassemble as a team once again but it was also an emotional experience that many of us never realized we'd have until we were in the presence of one another and able to express what it meant to be a part of The Team and forever linked to one another!
