Former NFL Star Sets Paper Airplane World Record! (VIDEO)

joe ayoobYou'd think a successful career as an NFL quarterback would be enough for most athletes. I mean, wouldn't playing QB for 2 seasons at Cal make a guy feel accomplished? Maybe some guys, but apparently not Joe Ayoob.

Nope, he had dreams. Joe Ayoob had big dreams.

Joe Ayoob believed he could fly.

(Paper airplanes, that is.)

No, seriously! Joe Ayoob believed he could fly paper airplanes with so much skill he would get his name in the Guinness Book of World Records.

And do you know what?


Check it out ...

Inside a hangar at McClellan Air Force Base outside Sacramento on Sunday, Ayoob broke the previous world record for paper airplane throwing (yes, there was one) of 207 feet and 4 inches. And he broke it by a lot!

The new record? 226 feet and 10 inches. Da-yamn!

I guess football biceps come in handy for more than just tossin' the old pigskin. Booya! I mean ... Ayoob! Hey, did you just get that???

Of course, Ayoob has plenty of experience with making and launching his own gliders:

"I grew up making paper airplanes. I used to make paper airplanes and throw them all the way home from school when I was little. So it was kind of up my alley. I thought it was a cool idea."

"Some people might think, 'What's the big deal? It's just a paper airplane.' But it's a world record ... It's very rewarding, and I'm very proud of this record."

See that, kids? You CAN make all your dreams come true! No matter how random and disconnected they might seem.

Just watch this:
