GATOR GREATS: PROFILES OF CHAMPIONS
The athletes responsible for the meteoric rise of the University of Florida football program since 1991 reads like a Who’s Who of College Football. Gator Greats: Profiles of Champions chronicles the life of one outstanding player from each of Florida’s combined eight Southeastern Conference and national championship teams. Former UF wide receiver and ESPN Radio host Chris Doering profiles the lives of these gridiron heroes both on and off the field through one-on-one interviews with the players and their families. In his own chapter, Doering recounts making the team as a walk-on in 1991 and, by graduation, catching more touchdown passes than anyone in UF and SEC history. Other players profiled include Huey Richardson, Errict Rhett, Kevin Carter, Alex Brown, Chris Leak and Riley Cooper. Each chapter features reproductions of the player’s favorite piece of memorabilia, making it a must have for any Gator fan as they learn about the men who turned an average program into a national powerhouse.

The Bama Way: Profiles of Champions – Available October 18th
Think about a time when you set a goal that you wanted to achieve and you were able to accomplish it…Or a time that you prepared to compete and you felt as if your work was complete and you were finally ready. It's a long road but the hard work is worth it. The only way to elude failure is to pursue success, commit, and never quit. I've always told my players to epitomize the best you must visua…lize success. Anything you can see…you can be. "See it be it, view it do it."I have the feeling that I tried to describe above…Today my book "The Bama Way:Profiles of Champions" releases! Don't purchase this book to just support me…buy this book to view the different walks of a champions life. Every champion has a different starting point but the same destiny…the top.
"This would make an awesome Christmas gift for ANY Alabama fan!….I am not kidding you when I say the book was very impressive."
