More Than Just The Catch (Hardcover)
By David Tyree
"This book tells my story. It includes the good, the bad, and the ugly. When you finish it, you will know that its message is about more than a game. It is about a life changed and the One who changed it." – David Tyree
New York Giants wide receiver David Tyree became a household name after his miraculous catch during Super Bowl XLII. But who is this Pro Bowl selection – and what's the real message behind his game? You'll be encouraged and inspired by the testimony of a man transformed into not only a skilled athlete, but a spiritual champion!
In "More Than Just the Catch," Tyree gives you an inside look at the lives and faith of players in the NFL, the physical program that got him where he is today and a behind-the-scenes account of the catch that positioned the Giants for their Super Bowl win. Let his story inspire you to a life of perseverance, faith and success. You may never be a Super Bowl hero, but you CAN be a hero every day in your own life.
There was a point in David Tyree's past – before the catch, before the fame – when his life was spiraling out of control and his football career was in jeopardy. In "More Than Just the Catch," Tyree takes you behind the scenes and the hype to the story of his life.
It is a story of mistakes and second chances. Of hard work, perseverance and faith. A story of love. And ultimately a story of grace.
It's a story that teaches us that, no matter how many times life knocks us down, we can come back ... and we can win.
“David Tyree, I don't know you and I don't watch football, but I am so glad that I ran across this book. Your spiritual transparency was remarkable and needed. You shared your most personal and private moments with the world. You revealed it all...Wow! This encouraged me and challenged me. I now have a boldness to tell my story because of how you told yours. It is unpopular to so many guys to be a Christian and to stand for God, but you Sir have inspired a generation of men and made it cool to be a believer in Christ. I applaud you. I prayed for you when I finished reading your book that you continue to stay the course. Blessings to you Sir.” – Chara
“I really enjoyed it and think it is an inspiring story for young men especially if they are heading down the wrong path in life.” – L. Lucia
“I love how he has interviews with his family members and others to get there perspectives of what he did. I loved how David used strong words to put you there with him to see him achieve and screw up. It really seemed like he enjoyed putting this book together the way he writes it. He wasn't afraid to tell you everything he has been through and his mistakes he made in the past.” – R. Stevens
“David Tyree's story is about God's redeeming love & power. When God gets ahold of your life, He can do wonderful things. I am so glad to see David write about his life, not glossing over the bad stuff but in the end, David gives all the glory to his savior, Jesus Christ and Lord.” – A Customer
