Synopsis: From the vast farmlands of Nebraska to the halls of Congress to the Green Zone in Iraq, Tom Osborne has become a legend by serving those around him and by always putting his God first. Perhaps no college football program in history has seen as much success as Osborne's did under his watch (255 wins in 25 seasons). But there is much more to Tom Osborne. Beyond the Final Score chronicles his years as a congressman, educator, family man, mentor, and now athletic director. It reveals the character, values, and faith that have grounded him throughout his incredible journey. Like a good memoir, Beyond the Final Score goes right to the heart of a true American legend. It takes the reader on a walk trough surprising moments (such as the day he began training Iraqi women on how to change their nation), profound insights (there is more prayer in Washington than one might think), and many less-than-serious moments (such as the day he thought he was going to teach his wife how to fish). A rare book in which an American legend brings wisdom, sensibility, dignity, and spirituality to culture, worldview, politics, leadership, and what really matters in everyday life.
From the Back Cover: From the vast farmlands of Nebraska to the marble halls of Congress to the Green Zone in Baghdad, Tom Osborne has become a beacon of what it means to succeed with character and in a humble spirit. He is most famous for leading the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers football team to three national championships and numerous conference titles. He also left a mark as a U.S. Congressman, co-introducing a trailblazing program to train Iraqi women in leadership skills, supporting a breakthrough inquiry into gambling in sports, and refusing to take PAC donations to enhance his election campaigns. His values, faith and commitment to serve have earned lasting respect from his players, other coaches, politicians on both sides of the aisle, women in Iraq, school children in Lincoln and everyday Americans. Much has been written about his coaching exploits, but there is more.Walk with himalong the sidelines of Memorial Stadium as he recounts the highs and lows of coaching student athletes through the transition from boyhood to manhood. Join him in the U.S. Capitol on September 11, 2001, when he receives word of the terrorist attacks. Take a boat ride with him as he tries to get his wife, Nancy, to troll for salmon with him. Read with eyes wide open about his race to become governor and his return to the University of Nebraska as athletic director. Glimpse the world through Tom’s eyes as he reflects on the changes in our culture over the last 40 years, and be inspired by his hope for the future.
