FOR 46 YEARS, Jim Scible lived his dream career as a high school football coach, spanning 11 jobs in 7 states, including Pennsylvania, Florida, and Texas. His love of the game was surpassed only by his love for his fellow coaches and teachers, as well as thousands of players who at key times exceeded even their own expectations. In Blood, Sweat, & Tears... Coach Scible recounts his joys, sorrows, failures, triumphs, and beyond-belief adventures -- both professional and personal -- with such zeal, hilarity, poignancy, and pride you'll feel you're along during this "helluva ride." His COACHING POINTS in each chapter enrich The Scible "Bible" for sports and non-sports enthusiasts alike, revealing life lessons he often learned the hard way. Even in his happy retirement with Pat, his longtime wife and partner, Jim Scible is still a teacher and coach whose wisdom and humor are not to be missed.
