For future Baylor coach Art Briles, the convergence of football and faith was tested early: He was just twenty when both his parents and his aunt were killed in a car crash as they drove to see him play in a college football game. His father and mother were gone, but lessons they left behind remained to shape his life. The road to gridiron coaching greatness did not come easy; he was twenty-eight before he received even his first high school head coaching job; but he stayed on the path, persisting and finally winning respect and victories, first at his alma mater University of Houston and then at Baylor, where last year, the team posted arguably their best season in history. In Beating Goliath, he draws on what faith has taught him about football and vice versa.
