Personal Quote:

[This quote is from late 1973 when Michael O'Hare was known as an Ivy League college football player and not as an actor yet. It appeared in several papers for several months across the US at the time.] "I originally got involved in football because of asthma," says O'Hare. "A doctor said I would never be in athletics. I found out you just need a little pride and a little heart." See more »
