Greg Horvath is an amazing example of an ordinary person achieving extraordinary results against incredible odds.
As a former high school dropout Greg Horvath has risen from the depths of addiction to an award winning film maker and published author.
Greg Horvath had always dreamed of one day going to college and playing college football. But unable to cope with the effects of a devastating childhood, he turned to alcohol, dropped out of high school and missed his opportunity, decisions that haunted him for years. Despite turning his life around in 1990 and establishing an award winning career in real estate, Horvath still felt that he had never shed the mistakes of his past. In 1999, after years of planning and training, Horvath took a leap of faith and pursued his seemingly impossible childhood dream.
Unbelievably, in 2000 at age 38, Greg Horvath was accepted at Saddleback College in California and given an opportunity to try out for the football team. Not only did he make the team, but he was named “Most Inspirational Player” for the 2000 season. Greg was also placed on the President’s Honor List for maintaining a 4.0 GPA. It was a dream come true! Horvath’s story was so inspirational that it was aired nationally in Canada, and was considered for a Gemini Award.
