About this title


Overtime, is a true story about Texas high school football, the way it is and what it should really be about-love.

A story about facing one's shame and becoming a man of substance, Overtime gives you a look into the author's life and those of the young men he coaches.

Vivid flashbacks and colorful play-by-play make this a book that you won't want to put down. Overtime is an attempt to carve out the eternal question, "Why are we here?"

Right before your eyes you'll see a wounded boy mature into a man who believes winning in football comes second to winning in life. Overtime is a book about overcoming adversity and learning how to be a real man. It is an honest and moving story that athletes, coaches, and all people can identify with.

"Awesome, a must read story. It could change your life."
-David McWilliams, University of Texas head football coach, 1987-1991
