It's Only Pain: But It's Real and It Hurts by Taylor Morton

Former University of Alabama football player Taylor Morton documents his journey through the mountains of pain in his life -- from dealing with the death of his brother, to being diagnosed with cancer, to being forced to walk away from football -- and the hope that helped him carry the sorrows that he could not understand. Though pain in this life is inevitable, it's real and it hurts; and therefore, it must be handled delicately. One of the most inspirational college football stories in the sporting world today, It's Only Pain will help you find hope, joy, and the strength to live with purpose, no matter what unfolds in life.
