Book Description

Called by ESPN Analyst Bill Curry and former collegiate head coach as "a great, great football player who can walk on the field and change the game. He's that good,” there was a time in Michael Clayton's life where the game of football was his main passion and purpose in life.

Then came a moment when Michael realized he needed to chase something else besides perfection on the football field. Each of us has ideals and after eight years in the league, Clayton started to chase and strive for his: compassion, solemnity, uprightness, charity. Clayton never gave up the chase for perfection on the field; he just started working harder toward perfection off of it. Chasing My Rookie Year is not a quest for glory. It is a quest for life’s purpose.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a football book June 18, 2014

I thought this would be a look inside his football career but it's some religious quest with some quotes about football in it

This is one of the "BEST" books I have ever read I underlined and made references throughout the book. It is so relatable too my life and many others too!!! I encourage anyone who can read to add this book to his/her library NOW!! You won't be disappointed and it may be the BEST invested your life will ever need. This is no joke, it is that good!! Kudos to you Michael for putting yourself out there and allowing us too learn from your experiences, as well. ty Stacey Karseras LPN [...]

Started reading this book sfter attending LSU Alumni Crayfish boil in Tampa where Michael was present & autographing copies. I did not put this book down until I was finished. It should be mandatory reading for middle school children. I take my three grandsons to school and breakfast once weekly and I am making them read it aloud & we discuss because it is the most powerful testimony to faith, ethics ,grace and just pure decent humanity. Michael, I am honored to have the privilege of sharing this book with my grandsons and I know it will make a profound difference in their lives. G Perkins, Tampa,Fl LSU Alumn
