Vince Papale Visits Eagles Walk-On Hopeful, Delivers Lunch

RaShaun Sligh is a 24-year-old football player who once attended a pro day at Temple University as a student but never actually suited up for the Owls' football team. He's certainly got perseverance because he's been out there (at Eagles camp) for the better part of a week.

His sign reads that he just "wants an opportunity to be an Eagle.

His hopes are a long shot but he wouldn't be the first guy to make the Eagles off the streets.

Every Eagles fan is familiar with the story of Vince Papale that was turned into the Disney movie "Invincible" starring Mark Wahlberg as the bartender-turned-Eagle.

Papale has turned his short stint as a walk-on with the Eagles in the 70's into a motivational speaker and he used some of his personal experience to stop outside of the NovaCare Complex on Tuesday and speak to Sligh about his dream of making it in the NFL.
