About the Book

"This is the NFL!" He asserted.
"I don't care! I work for Jesus Christ!" I shot back.

In the ultimate true tale of the Small Guys vs. the World, The Thunder Sports Network tells the story of two friends and brothers in Faith who dared to defy convention and foray into the domain of Big-Time Sports. The inspiring doors that were flung open include pro locker rooms, NFL front offices, the NCAA third base line, and peaked on the sideline of the most Super game of all.

This is not a self-help book, or a linear "how-to" for budding producers. This is an intentionally and thoughtfully woven true tale, hitting on familiar faces and places all along, sealed together by a Common Denominator that proves to be the best Author ever. A fun, fast read that takes you where your favorite sports network cannot.

"Thunder Sports Network was a unique idea that took vision and guts. These are great men to "Huddle Up" with in the game of Life!"

--David Baker, President and CEO, Pro Football Hall of Fame

"Thunder Sports Network shines the light of Christ on pro sports."
--Brock Huard, ESPN College Football Analyst

"Thunder Sports Network is the story of what happens when David rubs elbows
with Goliath. A true life adventure in faith."
--C.L. Brown, former ESPN / Current
College Basketball Reporter
