Editorial Reviews

Review

"Richie's story and book lit a fire within me. His drive, passion, and relentless will to succeed was reminiscent of my time at Notre Dame. At 5'7" and 155 pounds, Richie overcame the obstacles and the naysayers to earn a full SEC scholarship and a place in Ole Miss tradition." - Rudy Ruettiger "It is like watching the movie Rudy, but with a machine gun" Pat Canuso. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

Richie Contartesi is a Youth Motivational Speaker and the author of In Spite of the Odds, an inspirational story about an ordinary teen athlete who started as a walk-on and eventually earned a full Division I college football scholarship to the University of Mississippi better known as Ole Miss. Standing tall at 5’7 and 150 pounds, Richie defied the odds through hard work, crafting his skills, and never giving up on his dreams. As a youth motivational speaker, Richie brings his passion, perseverance, and hope, to America’s youth. By providing personal insight, Richie shares the adversity and struggles he faced when the odds were stacked against him and provides a realistic common sense roadmap for teens to reach their dreams. He explores why desire, commitment, hard work, and a never giving up attitude are the keys to personal success. Richie’s program is best aligned for High School and Middle School Assemblies, Parent Programs, and Student Leadership Organizations. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
