Synopsis

In 2004, Michael "Pinball" Clemons became the first black coach in the history of the CFL to hoist the Grey Cup in victory, the culmination of an experience that began when he came to Canada in 1989 as an unheralded American football player deemed too small to make it in the National Football League. Not only did Clemons make it big--literally and figuratively--in the Canadian Football League in a career that spanned 11½ seasons, but he cultivated a reputation as an enduring Canadian figure. In between dazzling people with his on-field exploits that resulted in winning the Most Valuable Player in the Canadian Football League in 1990, he became a Most Valuable Person off the field, too, giving generously of his time to charity and causes. His motivational speaking abilities at countless events have wowed his listeners. And throughout this period, Clemons began to realize that he wanted to make Canada his full-time home, embracing the country that, in turn, has embraced him. The book will focus on how it all came to be and how Mike Clemons' special qualities contributed to making him an enduring Canadian personality, well known beyond the city of Toronto where he became the most popular athlete. It will describe his tremendous natural leadership skills and important inspirational messages to Canadians.
