Michael Jay Boryla (born March 6, 1951 in Long Island, New York) was an American football quarterback in the National Football League for the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 1970s. He played college football at Stanford University, where he was the team's MVP during his senior season. Chosen by the NFL's Bengals in the 4th round of the 1974 NFL Draft, Boryla was then traded to the Eagles. At the 1976 Pro Bowl he threw two touchdown passes in the final minutes of the game to lead the NFC to a 23-20 win.[1]

In 2014, Boryla made his professional acting debut at Plays and Players Theatre in Philadelphia performing The Disappearing Quarterback, a one-man autobiographical theatrical performance that includes history, wit, and thinly-veiled opinions regarding professional sports concussions.[2][3]
