Overview

A MEMOIR OF LEADERSHIP, IMPACT & FAITH

Growing up among sports royalty in Boulder, Colorado, Bill Lam was taught one mantra: compete hard and win. He excelled as a star wrestler at the University of Oklahoma, adopting the "three periods of a champion" ethos-talent, hard work, and heart-instilled by his coach. For thirty years, he molded champions as head wrestling coach at the University of North Carolina, transforming the program into a national force.

Lam played as hard as he worked, earning a reputation for more than just wins. He himself had to journey through the three periods of a champion, maturing in the process. And at the height of his success, a wake-up call forced him to confront life's "overtime."

In Overtime: The Three Periods of a Champion and What Comes After, readers enter the competitive world of college sports and witness one man's evolution through life's tough lessons, as he fights to emerge a better person on the other side.
