“The Book, Winning in the 5th Quarter started out as simply a labor of love for my oldest son. When he came to me and expressed a sincere desire to achieve a DI college scholarship for football and dedicated himself towards achieving that goal, I became concerned. Robbie started paying football at 6 years old. I encouraged him to play, OK I pushed him to play. The reasons were very pure; I used football to teach the life lessons and principles of success the game of football uniquely offers all players regardless of the level. Let me explain, when I got out of college and stopped playing football I was so poor I was on welfare. It was at that point I figured out if I just applied what I had learned on the football field to my new game, life; I could achieve whatever I set my mind to. Coach Ken Hatfield told me that the NFL did a study and discovered over 80% of their players struggled with financial issues, addiction problems and relationship challenges within the first four years of leaving the league. The book grew in scope and is meant to help people understand and apply the principles of success in all aspects of their lives. Sports are really a microcosm for life. Now I’m on a mission to help athletes from all sports successfully transition from their game to the game of life.”
