Overview

At 23 years old, Josh Bidwell felt as if he were on the top of the world. A stellar college kicking career at the University of Oregon earned him a fourth–round NFL draft pick. But everything seemed to fall apart at the Packers’ training camp when he received a diagnosis of aggressive testicular cancer. Now Josh shares his gripping story of overcoming adversity and eventually becoming one of the NFL’s leading punters.

From his insider’s view, Josh describes what life is really like in the high–pressure world of professional sports—and how he is able to maintain a vibrant faith in a seemingly secular environment. He offers an inspiring tribute to those who influenced him along the way, and he provides tremendous motivation to readers who seek to overcome their own adversity or encourage others to become the people God created them to be.
