ABOUT THE BOOK

For the first time, NFL legend Ray Lewis opens up about the state of football as well as his troubled childhood, his rise to athletic greatness, and the accusations that threatened to ruin his athletic career.Ray Lewis’s storied seventeen-year career and two Super Bowl wins have earned him a place among the greats who have played the game. In his memoir, he brings us right onto the field to see the action from a player’s point of view. But he also has much to say about his struggles off the field, including his father's abandoning him as a child, his best friend’s murder, and his own wrongful incarceration that threatened to cut short his football career. But, as Lewis will attest, these heartbreaks helped lead him to renew his faith and on to become MVP when the Ravens won the Super Bowl in 2000, eventually taking him to a second Super Bowl title in his final season. Newly retired, Lewis reveals his controversial opinions on the business of football and offers insights about the torturous aspects of the sport that you don’t see on television. From a rookie player accused of murder to arguably the best defensive player in the history of the NFL, Lewis’s story is one of triumph and tragedy, tenacity and strength. Now a devoted father of six, Lewis attributes his athletic and personal success to his strong faith and unwavering trust in God. More than just an incredible rise to glory, Lewis’s story provides an honest and nuanced look at the most popular sport in America from one of football’s most respected players.

 

RAY LEWIS is widely considered to be one of the most dominant defensive players in the history of the NFL. Lewis led the Baltimore Ravens to victory in Super Bowl XXXV (where he was named Super Bowl MVP) and again in Super Bowl XLVII, in what would be the final game of his career. The Ravens’ all-time career leader in tackles and fumble recoveries, Lewis was selected for the Pro Bowl thirteen times (a record for linebackers) and named AFC Defensive Player of the Year three times before retiring in 2013. Today, Lewis is an analyst for the NFL on ESPN.
