Remember Why You Play

“Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.”      

Vince Lombardi

i love the game of football.

it’s the ultimate team sport. it’s the best sports metaphor for life. it’s great theatre; it’s got attitude, action, drama, suspense, heartbreak, redemption, retribution, etc. 

football is a beautiful game.

football is the best.

David Thomas is a sports columnist and senior writer for the Fort Worth Star – Telegram in Fort Worth, Texas, and author of the book Remember Why You Play: Faith, Football, and a Season to Believe.

Thomas followed the players and coaches of Grapevine, Texas’ Faith Christian School football team for a season. he records their ups and downs, stories, struggles, victories, and lives.

this book is required reading for football fans and it’s a fantastic read for anyone who loves a great story.

you’ll laugh. you’ll cheer. you’ll cry.

David Thomas’ book is wonderful.
