Brendon Ayanbadejo relentlessly pursued his NFL dream through eight different teams in four different leagues over a four-year period before finally earning his seat at the table with the Miami Dolphins in 2003, joining a roster that also featured his brother, Obafemi. The chase was worth it as Ayanbadejo became one of the top special teams players in the league, was selected to three Pro Bowls, named All-Pro twice, and appeared in two Super Bowls, capturing a championship with the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII. His impact has been felt far beyond the gridiron, however, through his staunch advocacy for LGBTQ rights.
