Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"This book tells my story. It includes the good, the bad, and the ugly. When you finish it, you will know that its message is about more than a game. It is about a life changed and the One who changed it."
--David Tyree

There was a point in David Tyree's life, before the catch, before the fame, when his life was spiraling out of control and his football career was in jeopardy. In More Than Just The Catch, David Tyree takes you behind the scenes and past the hype to the story of his life.

It is a story of mistakes and second chances. Of hard work, perseverance, and faith. A story of love. And ultimately a story of grace.

It's a story that teaches us that no matter how many times life knocks us down, we can come back...and we can win.

From the Back Cover

In More Than Just The Catch, David Tyree gives you an inside look at life and faith of players in the NFL, the physical program that got him where he is today, and a behind-the-scenes account of the catch that positioned the Giants for their Super Bowl win. Let his story inspire you to a life of perseverance, faith, and success. You may never be a Super Bowl hero, but you CAN be a hero every day in your own life.

On February 3, 2008, in Super Bowl XLII, David Tyree, special teams player and wide receiver for the NFL New York Giants made the greatest most ** MIRACULOUS ** catch in Super Bowl history. Leaping into the air with one of the greatest safety's in modern NFL history, Rodney Harrison of the New England Patriot's all over him, David pinned the ball to his helmet with the fingertips of his right hand... and crashed to the ground without dropping the pass! This was the pivotal play that led to a subsequent touchdown, which led the underdog Giant's to upset the heavily favored, and previously undefeated Patriot's and win the World Championship-Super Bowl!

Immediately upon the completion of this historic victory... and at every chance since... David steadfastly chants the following unwavering mantra:

"I GIVE THE CREDIT TO G-D! NOT ONLY DID HE ALLOW ME TO BE ON A SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM, BUT HE ALSO INTERVENED AND GAVE ME A MIRACLE BEFORE THE EYES OF THE WORLD."

This is David's life story, which he shares with the reader unflinchingly, in the retelling of all his missteps that eventually led him to being "reborn"... and dedicating his life to Christ. The reader will learn of his drug use... his blackout drunk alcoholism... his drug arrest... his wanton dishonoring of the mother of his children (Leilah) with repetitive womanizing... and even passing a venereal disease on to his future wife. On the night of his child's birth, David came home drunk... purposely tried to trip Leilah... and then passed out on the floor.

Finally one night, when David came to pick up his son; Leilah's cousin Angie, who had recently rededicated her life to the Lord, "looked into David's eyes, and he seemed to "not be there". She said that she saw the devil in David's eyes.

Who would have thought that this book would be about a man learning how to be a "Real Man?" This book shocked me. It was amazing! I read it in two days. David Tyree, I don't know you and I don't watch football, but I am so glad that I ran across this book. Your spiritual transparency was remarkable and needed. You shared your most personal and private moments with the world. You revealed it all...Wow! This encouraged me and challenged me. I now have a boldness to tell my story because of how you told yours. It is unpopular to so many guys to be a Christian and to stand for God, but you Sir have inspired a generation of men and made it cool to be a believer in Christ. I applaud you. I prayed for you when I finished reading your book that you continue to stay the course. Blessings to you Sir.

Thank you David Tyree for sharing your journey through darkness to the light of Jesus. This book is inspiring for people who are not Christians to get saved and for Christians to walk a closer walk with Christ. David is a strong Christian, good husband and father. From addiction to alcohol to super bowel champion. David shows how God wants us to be successful when we trust him. This is a book for everyone who needs to see what God can do in our lives if we let him. God bless David Tyree.

I heard about this book through Jonathan Cahn's video on the Harbinger. I had to get it afterwards, and loved the honesty of David Tyre's story, and his desire to honor God in the telling of it - so that he could be a help to others.

Bought this book after seeing David on Hannity. I read it before I gave it to my 2 sons. I really enjoyed it and think it is an inspiring story for young men especially if they are heading down the wrong path in life.

I've only heard about the catch until I was watching top 10 greatest catches then I finally saw one of the best catches (but Odell's catch was better). And i haven't read this book yet.
