Just a bit earlier than expected…I decided to show you a little peek at the book. It’s almost finished. Here is a little taste of the contents! Enjoy! Book cover, pre-orders, and release date announcements will be soon!
Rolling back the clock to the fall of 1998, the football practices began like any other year. My husband, Dr. Tim Green (he likes the title Coach Green better), was coaching the offensive and defensive lines. The group of coaches that he worked with were our friends and they were and still are amazing. We knew it at the time, but we know it even more now. Each one has gone on to great successes and has built legacies in their own way throughout their lives. Those young men that played on that field every Friday night and worked and sweated alongside each other throughout the week have now become men, fathers, husbands, and so much more. Many have now created successes in their own lives much like what they created together—effectively learning to be a champion not only on the field but also in life. The days when they pulled together one of the greatest feats in Rome’s history will never be forgotten. Unranked and unnoticed in the preseason, they rose to become the only undefeated team in the entire state of Georgia in any classification that year. They were David in the face of Goliath over and over every Friday night. No one gave them a chance. No one thought they had it in them. No one gave them any respect. Only they suspected what they could accomplish. They found those elusive qualities and bound them together in ways that cannot be described. They worked hard and depended on each other and they found a way to win every week no matter what they faced, focusing on one game at a time, one play at a time, one movement at a time…lifting each other up and refusing to quit. They found a way to be perfect.
