Part-motivational tome/part- memoir, this book from Duke Men's Basketball Coach Mike Krzyzewski, as the title "Beyond Basketball" suggests, is a blending of sport and life lessons learned during Krzyzewski's twenty-year coaching career.

"I am a believer in the power of words," says the author and the book reflects this in its organization of the book through words--such as passion, excellence, and integrity-- that Krzyzewski often employs his players to visualize during a game. Read More

In "Blind Side: Evolution of the Left Tackle" author Michael Lewis illustrates the fascinating transformation of this anonymous blue-collar position to that of a highly- paid football rock star.

But the most interesting aspect of the book is its narrative of young high school left tackle, Michael Oher, who, despite his Memphis housing-project background and lack of rudimentary scholastic skills becomes the focus of a controversy involving college boosters serving as legal guardians and an NCAA investigation. A fascinating read for anyone interested in the lengths some people will go to get a 'quality' left tackle. Read More

Lacrosse gear
In the evolution of the player, all men are not created equal. Some have a 100mph shot and run a 4.4 forty, most don’t. Most helmets haven’t evolved to include the performance features of Riddell’s K4T either. The lighter K4T’s patented air-fit inflatable lining system and extended jaw line meets player’s standards too – especially the guy with the rifle shot and the crazy speed. Ask for the Riddell K4T Titanium or any of the high-performance Riddell Lacrosse helmets wherever you get your gear. Check out Riddell Lacrosse at www.riddelllacrosse.com.
