Publisher's Summary

Coach Dan Blank once again over-delivers for listeners with another essential how-to book for college-bound soccer players. Written in the same plainspoken tone that shot Soccer IQ to best-seller status, Rookie is more conversation than book. It gives rising college freshmen a revealing preview of life as a college soccer player and provides them with a wealth of survival tips for making the most of their debut seasons. Rookie covers topics that incoming freshmen will be starved to learn, including a remarkably clear-cut strategy for earning playing time.

Another game winner by Dan Blank!

I had read all of Dan's books except this one and bought the audiobook to listen to on a road trip. My son is a high school junior and in the process of choosing colleges and being evaluated by coaches. This book was excellent! Even though my son has not committed to playing in college yet he listened to it and loved it. While the book is about surviving your freshman year of college soccer it accomplishes this by helping players focus on how to become a better athlete and a better teammate. A great example of advice that falls into "I wish I knew then what I know now". Thanks Dan for providing that wisdom!
