He is the American Football Conference's rushing champion, the outstanding player who has made NFL history rushing for 2,000 yards in a single season. He is the league's 1998 Most Valuable Player. Now in this deeply honest book, two-time world champion and record-setting Super Bowl XXXII MVP Terrell Davis recounts the inspiring, fascinating story of his life, a tale of adversity and triumph that makes carrying a football seem easy.
From his Pop Warner days, when he was known as "Boss Hogg" to nearly being overlooked by college scouts; from overcoming migraines to surviving a contentious father; from attending a school whose football program folded after he arrived to a difficult intercollegiate sports career; from his battle from sixth string to starting running back for the Broncos his rookie year to becoming one of the NFL's top--and nicest, most likable--players, TD takes you on a journey into the mind and heart of a superstar. Informative, uplifting, TD shows how Terrell has maintained the edge to succeed others have lost and celebrates his unique relationship with the person he calls "my hero," his mother, a remarkable woman who's been beside him through it all.
TD is an extraordinary story--the memoirs of a champion.

In 1996, when Adam Schefter was asked to cowrite Terrell Davis's book, Shefter thought it was a bit premature. After all, Davis had just finished his first year in the NFL. But after Terrell rushed for three touchdowns and 157 yards in the Denver Broncos' Super Bowl XXXII upset victory over the Green Bay Packers, Shefter and Terrell started their work. After spending hundreds of hours with Terrell in an effort to better understand him as a person rather than a player, Shefter wonders why the book wasn't written sooner.
Dreams in Motion certainly captures Davis's gridiron heroics, but more importantly, it focuses on the incredible amount of off-field challenges he's overcome to reach this high level of success. Thanks to his mother's lessons of love, hard work, and high standards, he survives a tough San Diego upbringing, a hard-nosed father, and a football path that derails at almost every level. And despite seemingly less-than-adequate football skills, Davis rises up through the NFL ranks with unwavering resolve, proving the importance of a mother's work. --Ben TiffanyAbout the Author:
