Whether you are a parent, coach or teacher looking for a tool that can inspire and motivate, a fan interested in learning how players overcame obstacles to reach the NFL or just someone that enjoys reading poignant, inspiring stories, Insightful Player delivers.
Each Insightful Player story shows solid evidence of the immense power of the human spirit. We all need to be reminded of this, especially kids and especially now. Insightful Player brings to life how players that reached the NFL did so not only on their talent, but often because of the heroic acts they made to overcome life's obstacles.
A player's father was murdered when he was eight; he had to duck for cover in his home because bullets were flying on his street... Another player saw people shot as early as the age of five and often saw dead bodies on his street before his teens...A Hall of Fame player never had a winter coat or winter boots and didn't always have food to eat...A former player was put in classes for the mentally disabled, his father "beat the tar" out of him, his coaches wouldn't help him get into college because they said he had no talent....All of these players overcame these hardships to achieve a place in the NFL.
Each player's story provides a lesson in perseverance, values, courage and integrity. Insightful Player is a playbook for inspiring us all, especially our children. Use it to teach, inspire and learn.
