Book Description

The name Ronnie Lott screams toughness and excellence. As a ten-time Pro Bowl selection and a first-ballot Hall of Famer, Ronnie is one of the most respected figures in professional sports. Add his four Super Bowl rings with the San Francisco 49ers to what was arguably his best season, leading the NFL in interceptions with the Oakland Raiders, and you've heard only part of the story. Off the field, Lott is known as a tireless advocate for children. His nonprofit, All Stars Helping Kids, has raised millions of dollars to improve the lives of at-risk young people. Even more, Ronnie is a coach and catalyst for other athletes who have a heart for making their communities a better place. In football and in life, Ronnie will forever be known as one of the hardest hitters of all time. When you collide with Ronnie Lott, you feel the impact.

In "SPORTStweet: What I Learned from Coaches About Sports and Life," football legend Ronnie Lott has thrown open the doors to the secrets that made him the toughest defensive back of all time and unearths his driving motivations in short, readable profiles from his days before, during, and after the NFL.

Get behind the scenes to see the synergy between Lott, Montana, and Rice, and sneak a taste of the coaching geniuses that made the 49ers and the USC Trojans iconic sports dynasties. Get personal with Ronnie as he reflects on life and relationships and get pumped up by his inspirational words.

"If you can just get in the periphery of greatness," writes Lott, "some of it is bound to rub off on you." This book gets you close to a champion. It shows you the heart of greatness--the heart behind the hit!

"#SPORTStweet" is a treasure-trove for every athlete, coach, student, teacher, and parent. After reading this book, sport-lovers of every age will be inspired, informed, entertained, and even changed by the influence of Ronnie's brief but power-packed words. Like a hit from Ronnie Lott, this book will get your attention.

"#SPORTStweet Book01" is part of the THINKaha series whose 100-page books contain 140 well-thought-out quotes (tweets/ahas).

Editorial Reviews

Review

"I think Ronnie's the greatest of all time. He's helped me immensely by teaching me the nuances of the safety position as I start my NFL career. Ronnie's work ethic and attention to detail were the building blocks for him mastering his craft, and I think this book will help people see into the life of somebody who epitomizes greatness both on and off the field." --Taylor Mays, Safety, San Francisco 49ers

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading Ronnie's book on champions. My son is a high school football coach and I insisted that he and his players need to read it. It's a great building block to help young adults understand the sacrifices it takes to be a champion on the field and in life." --Sandy Sandoval, Senior Director, EA Sports Marketing

"This book of sports tweets is very inspirational, great reading, and very credible coming from a proven Hall of Famer like Ronnie Lott." --Daniel M. Snyder, Owner, Washington Redskins

"Ronnie Lott was one of those classic players who would have excelled in any era, and this book offers insight that is just as timeless." --Ken Whisenhunt, Head Coach, Arizona Cardinals

Baron Davis, Star NBA Point Guard

"Growing up watching football, I was always drawn to Ronnie Lott. The way he played, the way he leads, and the way he carries himself has always been an inspiration to me and many of my friends and teammates. Doesn't matter if you're an athlete, a fan, or somewhere in between, bottom line is you can learn from and be inspired by Ronnie Lott's insightful life lessons."
Ray Lewis, Eleven-Time NFL Pro Bowl Selection and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player
