Jefferson High School teachers read the book to their students from January to March as part of the One Book, One School project.

I wish the kids were reading themselves the book but this is a neat story. I'm shocked that some parents haven't raised a stink because of the Christian content in the book. If any of you haven't read it, it's really a refreshing read. Amazon says the softcover comes out in June.

If I was an NFL football player and had to pick one current coach I could play for, I would pick Tony Dungy. This is a coach I could trust to make me a winner, on and off the field.

Nothing like the message from a true Christian to move many. Tony is a man among men.
