Satisfaction Guaranteed. In his debut book, Fendi Onobun proves that it's never too late to find a new dream. Like many, Onobun was once just a kid shooting hoops in his backyard, who dreamt of playing for a much larger audience. Onobun knew that raw talent wasn't enough to play in the NBA, so he dedicated his life to training for the day he might play pro-ball. After playing power forward for the legendary Coach Lute Olson at the University of Arizona, a change in coaching staff left Onobun's chances of having a professional basketball career up in the air. With his childhood dream of making it to the NBA in question, friends proposed the idea of trying a new sport: football - a sport he only played once in middle school! Onobun found himself at a crossroads. In a grueling year where he trained simultaneously to play basketball and learn football, he eventually transformed himself from a power forward to a tight end with NFL potential. Beset with injuries and troubles with his childhood, faith, and trust, he persevered. It was a tough road - for many, it would have been an impossible road - but Onobun's work ethic and determination to do the right thing ended in victory. In this fascinating and unique story, Onobun shares how he got to the top in sports, the hardships he faced, and what it takes to play in one of the most competitive leagues in the world. A story of grit, hard work, faith, and courage, Onobun's fast-paced tale of life on and off the court (and field) will leave you ready to tackle your dream - no matter how elusive it may seem. .

The Only Game That Matters: The Harvard / Yale Rivalry

By Bernard Corbett and Paul Simpson

New York: Crown Publishers, 2004. CL2 - A first edition (stated with complete numberline) hardcover book SIGNED by Bernard Corbett and Paul Simpson on the half-title page in very good condition in very good dust jacket that is mylar protected. Book has remainder mark on the bottom page edges, dust jacket and book have some light discoloration and shelf wear. Forewords by Senator Edward M. Kennedy and Governor George E. Pataki. As Harvard graduate Roger Angell once said, "The Game picks us up each November and holds us for two hours and... all of us, homeward bound, sense that we are different yet still the same. It is magic." 9.5"x6.5", 301 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed. For hundreds of thousands of alumni and fans, the annual clash between Harvard and Yale inspires a sense of nostalgia and pride unequaled anywhere in sports. For much of the year Ivy League football is overshadowed by powerhouse programs such as Miami and Michigan. But not on the third Saturday of November, when all eyes turn to New England for the legendary battle between the Crimson and the Blue. In The Only Game That Matters, Bernard M. Corbett and Paul Simpson explore what makes this iconic rivalry so revered, so beloved, and so pivotal in college football history. Known simply as "The Game," this tradition-soaked Ivy League feud began in 1875, and it has been leading the evolution of college football ever since. Although the Ivy League hasn't had a national champion in decades, The Game still stands alone in the college football pantheon. It is a living history, its roots reaching back to a time when young men took to the field for the sake of competition, not for a chance at a million-dollar pro contract. The Game, then and now, features the true student athlete. Of course, it also features bloody brawls, ingenious pranks, and breathtaking comebacks. The Only Game That Matters recounts the 2002 season through the eyes of players and coaches, interweaving the modern-day experience with great stories of classic games past. By tracing this venerable competition from its inception - looking at such legendary games as 1894's Bloodbath in Hampden Park and Harvard's 29-29 "win" in 1968 and such influential coaches as Yale's Walter Camp, the father of football as we know it - the anatomy of a rivalry emerges. Culminating in the thrilling 2002 contest, The Only Game That Matters illuminates the unique place this storied feud occupies in today's sports world. To the game of football, to the spirit of rivalry, to the Crimson and Blue faithful, The Game is the only game that matters.. Signed by Both Authors. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Remainder.
