Only one goal exists in college football, winning a national championship. Is the price you pay to get there, both personally and professionally, worth the reward? Written from the perspective of a former Division I Athletic Director, "Lost In Ambition" will take you on an inside look as one coach and his family embark on a quest for the ultimate prize.
As he rises through the profession, the notoriety and the adulation of the fans is intoxicating for a young coach. He begins to justify his behavior in ways even he could never have imagined, compromising his morals, his family, and his upbringing.
As he sits in the locker room preparing to coach his team for the national championship of college football, he reflects on his complicated life and is left wondering why he is not more excited about this "once in a lifetime" opportunity. With so much hanging in the balance, he walks onto the field to coach his team in the biggest game of his life!
