Product Description

The Game That Almost Broke Me is the inspirational story of Tavarski Wallace, an ambitious player in the game of achieving a spot in the NFL, and a resilient player in the turbulent, challenging, and sometimes unfair game of life. The intriguing evolution of "Taz" Wallace is remarkable in this book-long journey, which is marked by milestones of overcoming adversity – from resolving struggles academically, supporting his hard-working single mother, to ultimately managing the unforgiving politics of professional football.

From modest beginnings in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Taz documents a series of key relationships which shaped him as an individual and helped fuel his dreams of becoming a linebacker in the NFL. With unrelenting persistence every step of the way, the experiences, failures, and surprising successes of Taz in The Game That Almost Broke Me prove how the American Dream can dramatically transform with time, and may even become something entirely different in the end.

In The Game That Almost Broke Me, Taz writes about the decisions that shaped his life. Taz's transparency about his journey will inspire readers to hold on to belief in the midst of adversity and win in the game of life. Perfect for anyone looking for an inspiring story.

About the Author

Taz Wallace ended his Adrian College career as the most prolific defensive player in NCAA Division III history. His career average of 13.41 tackles-per-game is a Division III record and ranks second all-time in any division. His school record 429 career stops eclipsed the previous mark by 140 tackles. He served as a team captain and was the squad's most valuable player three times, while earning multiple All-American honors, All-MIAA honors and additional national recognition. He was also a participant in the East Coast and Magnolia Bowls in 2006. His time on and off the field inspired him to write The Game That Almost Broke Me, a chronicle of his career as an NCAA player and what came after.

5.0 out of 5 starsWhat a fabulous story about a young man's life that could have taken several different turns. An example for the rest of us, and especially for anyone who thinks he/she may have limited choices or direction in his/her own circumstances. We never run out of options, as long as we're willing to risk letting go of perhaps the only things we know. Ultimately, Tavarski Wallace shows us that what is within us that takes us on our paths to peace, happiness, and success......and that the people around us play valuable roles for us, and vice versa!! Well done!!
