About the Author
Nate Ebner is a two-sport athlete who is the only person to ever compete in the Olympics as an active NFL player and then gone on to win a Super Bowl. He has won 3 Super Bowls with the New England Patriots and participated in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games as one of twelve members of the United States Rugby team, and now plays for the New York Giants. In his youth, Ebner bonded with his father through rugby. After Ebner tragically lost his father, he kept his promise to him to walk onto the football team at Ohio State and make it in the NFL.

Paul Daugherty has been the sports columnist at the Cincinnati Enquirer since 1994. In 2015, the Associated Press Sports Editors named Daugherty the best columnist and best feature writer in America.
Reviews
"The book's most compelling chapters describe Nate coming to terms with his father's death and figuring out how to honor him in daily life. . . . This memoir will find readers among fans of insider sports accounts, or anyone fascinated by what it takes to become a pro athlete." --Karl Helicher, Library Journal

"One could hardly draw, let alone traverse, the unlikely, utterly grueling path that Nate Ebner's life has taken to athletic achievement. . . An instruction manual on the shaping of a professional athletic career, one insanely tough workout at a time, founded on unswerving parental attention, love, and support." --Booklist

"Taking risks and pushing oneself to the limit are strong themes, as well, and the loving bond between a father and son is evident throughout . . . . A tale that will appeal to sports fans and those who appreciate the determination and physical and mental toughness required to thrive at the top level of sports." --Kirkus
