Book Description: RG3 explores the athletic prowess, faith, and leadership of the NFL’s hottest star.
Robert Griffin III is a world-class athlete, a Heisman Trophy winner, team captain of the Washington Redskins, and NFL Rookie of the Year. Just twenty-two years old, he has begun his ascent as a game-changing NFL quarterback and living testimony of Christian faith. RG3 goes deep into the pressures of the NFL to showcase this young superstar’s abilities, faith, and leadership.
How does RG3 maintain his competitive edge? How does he deal with the pressure of carrying a historic franchise on his shoulders? Can he take the NFL pounding, week in and week out? What is the likely outcome of his career if he remains a “running quarterback”? How does he balance on- and off-field commitments? What’s his character like? What role does his faith play in all this?
RG3 is a great football book that offers an in-depth look at practices, media appearances, off-field commitments, on-field exploits, and quiet moments of leadership over the course of a season. Peek behind the curtain of an athlete in progress as he seeks to make a world-class impact with his talent and his faith at the same time.
My Thoughts: Robert Griffin III is one of our favorite athletes. He seems to be a rather down to earth guy and I was hoping this book would give a little insight into Robert Griffin III the man rather than just RG3 the football player. The book details Griffin's career from beginning to winning the Heisman to now. An okay read as I would have loved to read more about Griffin's beliefs, but the foreword by Jim Kelly was a great read.
Buy It: Robert Griffin III is available at bookstores everywhere including online booksellers like Amazon.
