New York Giants and leading the team to their dramatic Super Bowl victory over the previously unbeaten New England Patriots. Strahan had an outstanding final season and lead one of the top defenses in the league.

In 2005, he was among the league's leaders in total sacks, and earned his seventh trip to the Pro Bowl. In 2001, Strahan completed what is widely considered to be one of the greatest seasons ever for a defensive player. As the charismatic leader of the New York Giants, Strahan was named the 2001 NFL Player of the Year by Sports Illustrated and the Defensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press. He was also one of only four players to lead the NFL in sacks for two seasons.

Strahan's additional television credits include "Pros vs. Joes," which pits amateur contestants against professional athletes in a series of athletic challenges; the family-oriented cable series "Backyard Stadiums," where he and his co-host visited various neighborhoods to build batting cages, putting greens and outdoor recreational centers. He also hosted "Sack and Renovate," giving viewers an inside look at the renovation of his 100-year-old home and revealing his own passion for antiques.

Strahan donates his time to numerous charities throughout the New York metropolitan area. The Michael Strahan Foundation, dedicated to assisting disadvantaged youths, raises funds through the annual Michael Strahan Charity Golf Tournament. Strahan is also a supporter of the New York Restoration Project, an organization founded by Bette Midler dedicated to the preservation of New York's outdoor spaces.

He is actively involved with several national charities, including the American Cancer Society, the Children's Miracle Network, Housing Enterprises for the Less Privileged (H.E.L.P.) and the Starlight Children's Foundation. Strahan was honored this year by the Fresh Air Fund, an organization that provides underserved children with the chance to experience the joy of summer vacations.

Though he was born in Houston, Texas, Strahan spent most of his youth in Germany where his father was stationed in the U.S. Army. Strahan returned to the U.S. for a portion of high school and was recruited to play football at Texas Southern University. During his senior year, Strahan was selected All-America first team by the Associated Press with a record number of tackles and sacks.

Strahan currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
