Why is this book important?
From the Foreword by Coach Mack Brown
“Most athletes’ lives have been regulated since high school, and when they get to college, it’s regulated more. What they eat, when they eat, when they sleep, and where and when they have to be at practice and class are things they never had to think about. After college, they are now thrust into a world without regulation, and it’s up to them to figure it out and make something of it. I recommend this book as the first step in navigating this unknown journey in which they now find themselves.”
