Editorial Reviews

Review

''Playing in the National Football League requires more than physical skill. It also takes qualities of good character that lead to success in life--qualities like integrity, perseverance, and a strong work ethic. Pigskin Dreams provides an interesting look into the early lives of some of the best football players in history and the positive influences on their character that helped lead them to greatness.''
--Roger Goodell, commissioner, National Football League

''Pigskin Dreams tells of the influences, character traits, and journeys that made these athletes not just great sportsmen, but great people. As a former athlete, this book is inspiring . . . as an active parent, this book is enlightening.''
--Garth Brooks, number-one-selling solo artist in U.S. history

''Winners in sports and business are team players with strong character and the drive to be the best. I learned that from my father, an NFL player and coach who lived his dreams and taught me to pursue mine with the same passion and commitment. Pigskin Dreams offers inspiring stories from athletes who were winners on and off the field.''
--Bill Johnson, chairman, president, and CEO of H.J. Heinz Company

''Pigskin Dreams is much more than a book about sports. It s a book about life and how adult role models can have a positive and lasting impact on young people.''
--Art Rooney II, president/owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers

''Many of those who have the greatest impact on their teammates, and the game itself, possess qualities beyond mere athletic talent. In Pigskin Dreams, the personal testimony of many of the NFL's most impressive figures movingly illustrates that fact.''
--Bob Costas, broadcaster, NBC Sports and Major League Baseball Network

This is a great book for families, especially for those with younger children who are playing sports. A great character boost! A really "feel-good" book!

I gave this to my son on recommendation from a TV program that featured a synopsis of the story.
It sounded like it would provide motivation and a good read for a sports minded person.
