Season of Life: a Football Star, a Boy, a Journey to Manhood
Joe Ehrmann, a former NFL football star and volunteer
coach for the high school football team,
teaches his players the keys to successful defense: penetrate,
pursue, punish, love. Love? A former captain of
the Baltimore Colts and now an ordained minister,
Ehrmann is serious about the game of football but
even more serious about the purpose of life. Season of
Life is his inspirational story as told by Pulitzer
Prize--winning journalist Jeffrey Marx, who was a ballboy
for the Colts when he first met Ehrmann.
Ehrmann now devotes his life to teaching young
men a whole new meaning of Masculinity. He teaches
the boys at Gilman the precepts of his Building Men
for Others program: Being a man means emphasizing
relationships and having a cause bigger than yourself.
It means accepting responsibility and leading courageously.
It means that empathy, integrity, and living
a life of service to others are more important than
points on a Scoreboard.
Decades after he first met Ehrmann, Jeffrey Marx
renewed their friendship and watched his childhood
hero putting his principles into action. While chronicling
a season with the Gilman Greyhounds, Marx
witnessed the most extraordinary sports program he'd
ever seen, where players say "I love you" to each other
and coaches profess their love for their players. Off the
field Marx sat with Ehrmann and absorbed life lessons
that led him to reexamime his own unresolved relationship
with his father.
Season of Life is a book about what it means to be a
man of substance and impact. It is a moving story that
will resonate with athletes, coaches, parents--anyone
struggling to make the right choices in life.
