Every High School and College Athlete should read

This was assigned to my daughter and I listened along.
As a former high school and college athlete, I totally understood the message and it is a great message for inspiring players to hear how to be a Great Team Mate.
Quick book and well worth it.

FANTASTIC BOOK

This was an amazing read. I have been so inspired by hearing about George’s life. As a college athlete I related to the story very closely and was deeply touched about how one life can reach so many in a positive way. Would 10/10 recommend to anyone, athlete or not. I have read over 8 of Jon Gordon’s books and this one has been my favorite
