    I am now a bigger Jim Tressel fan than I ever was before, and Kudos to author David Lee Morgan! I loved reading this book! It drew me in right away as the reader! I am recommending it to all of my family, friends, and co-workers:)

    This book is great for everyone: YSU fans, OSU fans, football fans, sports fans, coaches, teachers, mentors, and anyone who is interested in a true story about a man's faith and character, choices, and success! As I read the book, my reactions were this: I smiled and giggled at times, my eyes teared up and I cried a little about what I was reading during certain parts, and I speed-read some parts with excitement to find out what happens next. I couldn't put it down! The personal stories kept my attention throughout the book. I have the upmost respect for Coach Tressel and those that work and have worked for him, and the players and people whose lives he has touched. I highly recommend this book - you will not be disappointed!
