 Merril Hoge Biography

Three simple words helped Merril Hoge live a dream and fight to live: Find-A-Way! Armed with those words, Hoge has faced and beat cancer, survived open-heart surgery, endured career-ending head trauma, battled depression, and overcome a farming accident as a young boy that nearly cost him his hand.

“Find A Way” inspired action in Hoge’s life, and today his empowering message encourages people to take action and Find A Way to achieving, overcoming, and changing the circumstances of their own lives.

A retired NFL running back and former ESPN analyst, Hoge shares with audiences his story of prevailing over life's hurdles through strength and determination while achieving success through hard work and perseverance. He began his NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, eventually joining the Chicago Bears before retiring due to post-concussion syndrome. During his 20+ years as an ESPN analyst and host, Hoge was well-known for his sharp insights and knowledge of the game and is still sought after as an NFL insider.

In 2010, Hoge wrote his first book, Find A Way: Three Words That Changed My Life, in which he shares inspiring, life-changing experiences, along with stories of people like Chuck Noll and Walter Payton, who challenged and inspired him. He published Brainwashed: The Bad Science Behind CTE and the Plot to Destroy Football in 2018, an informative, game-changing book that shines a light on the facts surrounding the science.
