About this title:
A riveting debut novel of a season in the life of a professional football player?written by one of the NFL's best tight ends of all time.
Dominic Fucillo is a tight end for the surging New York Giants. Rebellious, ferociously angry, deeply religious and fighting injuries and a crumbling love life that would bring the average man to his knees, Dom is a veteran player who is having the toughest season of his career at a time when his team can do nothing wrong--or so it seems.
Because behind the big wins, a major scandal is brewing. The team's star linebacker has always lived on the edge and enjoyed the nightlife more than he should. But when he's found beaten nearly to death in the stadium parking lot, it's clear he's gotten himself into more than even he bargained for, and it's something that threatens to tear himself and his team's promising season apart.
Inspired by his years shedding blood and sweat playing professional football, ROUGH & TUMBLE is Mark Bavaro?s novel about the brutal world of the NFL?and a classic sports story of one man?s determination and grit.
About the Author:
MARK BAVARO is widely considered one of the toughest, most idiosyncratic athletes ever to play in the NFL and one of the best tight ends of all time. He played college football at Notre Dame, graduated in 1985, and was drafted by the Giants where he stayed through the 1990 season and played for Bill Parcells and alongside Phil Simms and Lawrence Taylor. He also played with the Cleveland Browns and the Philadelphia Eagles. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1986 and 1987 and was a pivotal member of the New York Giants during their Super Bowl XXI and XXV wins. He lives in Massachusetts.
