Thirteen years after the release of “Invincible” and 43 years since Vince Papale’s Philadelphia Eagle’s debut, Vince Papale Jr. is getting his own Eagles tryout.
The son of the Eagles legend will participate in a local pro day with the Eagles on April 17, according to Eagles Wire’s Andrew DiCecco.

The younger Papale just finished his college career as a wide receiver and punt returner with Delaware, where he recorded 19 receptions and 248 career receiving yards.
.@DelawareFB @vinny_papale will be a free agent in 1/32 camps come July. I wonder when @athielen19 came out of Mankato State if many were paying attention. The world is paying attention now and maybe #Papale can be the next. Only in America. #BaldysBreakdowns pic.twitter.com/u9AJDtH7R9

While that production is obviously modest as far as potential NFL players go, they’re definitely better than his father’s. The elder Papale famously made his NFL debut at the age of 30 in 1976 with no college football experience, earning a spot on the team through a tryout.
Papale would go on to become a special teams standout with the Eagles and eventually have his story immortalized in Disney’s “Invincible,” released in 2006 and starring Mark Wahlberg as Papale.
