From the Inside Flap
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.

"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.
