From Barnes & Noble
During his twelve-year professional football career (1991-2002), O.J. Brigance was honored by teammates, who twice elected him their captain. Respect only mounted after the now retired linebacker received the news that he had ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). In 2007, when he was diagnosed with the malady, doctors told him that he had only three to five years to live. Now, six years later, he shares the story of how he continues to fight to this radically debilitating illness. True to form, this current Baltimore Ravens director of player development devotes much of the book to his team, the underdog champions of Super Bowl XLVII. The heartwarming testimony of a truly heroic motivator.
