Eric Hipple is a former NFL quarterback whose ten year career was spent entirely with the Detroit Lions. Since his retirement from football, Eric has been a professional motivational speaker. His public speaking work shifted to topics of depressive disorder awareness and treatment, and to suicide prevention in 2000, after the tragic death of his 15-year-old son to suicide.
Through his book, Eric chronicles his life in football, his own depression and struggle with suicide loss and his son. His story is one of hope and recovery and uses education as well as practical advice to help others live and enjoy life again.
