‘Yogi, you’re a writer.’
My Mom told me that in 5th grade when I was writing for our school newspaper. At the time my sights were set on playing in the NBA or NFL but I must admit, she was right. I’ve always loved telling stories, whether I write them privately in journals, share them on a stage in front of thousands of people, or even depict them throughout books and in films.
The craft of sharing a story is embedded in my soul and my first two books, FROM PA TO LA and WIN FOREVER, which were unique experiences that helped start my writing career. I recently released 5-STAR QB that is a compilation of my life’s work in college football and will serve as a tribe of mentors to players, parents and fans of college football. Most recently, I wrote my first children’s book, FINDING FREE FUN, which was also made into an animated short film. So Mom, looks like you were right…again. Hope you enjoy!
