Former Tampa Bay defensive tackle Warren Sapp is known for his rough plays on the football field.
Now he is taking his attacks off the field and adding a new title to his name – author.
In his newly released memoir “Sapp Attack,” the former football player covers his years at the University Of Miami and his 13 seasons as an NFL star, noting all the people that helped in his career.
“I had some great teachers and I had some great coaches to help me along the way," Sapp tells Soledad on "Starting Point." "I wanted to acknowledge them because when you take off and you leave a small little town like Plymouth and go down to University of Miami...now you’re in Tampa and now you’re on the world stage and you’re doing all this...you have to look back and say there was some beautiful people that helped me get out of that little town.”
Sapp also talks about his experience in becoming runner-up on "Dancing with the Stars."
“You have to be able to move your feet and I had a beautiful partner,” Sapp says. “Normally when I show up at a stadium to dance there’s two 350lb men trying to take my head off. She wanted to dance with me!”
