Texas Longhorns walk-on alum, retired NFL player and U.S. Army Green Beret Nate Boyer is slowly taking over the world. Multiple outlets reported earlier this week that Boyer, who famously walked on at Texas after never playing a down of football in his life, is making his directorial debut. The film is titled, naturally, “MVP.”

Here’s how Variety summed up Boyer’s debut:

“Executive produced by Sylvester Stallone, ‘MVP’ is based on the true story of the formation of Merging Vets & Players, which Boyer co-founded with Jay Glazer with the aim of empowering and connecting combat veterans and former professional athletes, providing them with a new team to assist with transition to civilian life and promote personal development.”
