Throughout the last 30 years I’ve been a part of many Father’s Day Weekend’s. Growing up in Dalton, Pennsylvania our celebrations were never elaborate. As Will Roth would say, “With a family like this, every day is Father’s Day.”
As a young adult it is easy to look back on my Dad and see a man who was constantly teaching, consistently engaging and always loving as I grew up.
A great athlete, he never pushed sports on his children, rather he pushed kindness, respect and humility.
A wise professional, he never lost sight of the fundamentals or ideals that allowed a roof to be over his family.
A constant adventurer, he accepted his three children’s wildest dreams and supported them … Read More
Jay Leno seemed to know what is going on with the competitor’s brand, Winforever. Last week, he had three guests: all amazing competitors, that have a direct relationship with Winforever.
On Wednesday, he had Brian Banks. The next day, the Winforever team was at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center for his first workout with an NFL team, Winforever founder Pete Carroll’s Seattle Seahawks.
Brian is a true competitor. He spent five years in prison after being falsely accused of rape. He would have played for Coach Carroll at USC, but instead took a ten-year detour before getting the opportunity he’s been dreaming about. Look for what may come from this mentally tough athlete. Here’s an awesome video feature on … Read More
Yesterday, we were able to witnes an absolutely incredible story.
Brian Banks, a former USC football recruit, received his second chance for the NFL this week. On Thursday, Coach Carroll gave him a tryout with the Seattle Seahawks.
We were fortunate enough to be able to witness the tryout and provide an exclusive video feature on the day. Coach Carroll ended up granting Banks with an opportunity to come back for minicamp, beginning next week!
This is truly an incredible story on persistence and second chances. Check out the video to see what a powerful day it was.
Brian Banks is certainly a hot topic right now. In the past couple weeks he has been exonerated from his charges, given … Read More
We were excited to see Louis Zamperini on Jay Leno on Thursday night. The subject of Unbroken has arguably the most incredible story of any living person in the world. What he has gone through is remarkable.

In this new series, we will provide weekly excerpts from Pete Carroll’s New York Times Best Selling book, Win Forever, and others that are of interest to you.
In between jobs during 2000, Coach Carroll spent time finding his philosophy. This week, we examine how Coach Carroll discovered his and created the Win Forever pyramid:
“The third level of the pyramid is about the importance of practice. After decades of coaching football at different levels, I was prepared to boldly state the “Practice Is Everything.” By placing practice on a high level of the pyramid, I was making a statement. We would never accept having a poor practice or taking a day off. There would be no … Read More
In the highest act of class, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed former Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand to a free agent rookie contract Wednesday.
Tampa Bay head coach Greg Schiano, who coached LeGrand at Rutgers, used his final roster spot for his former player. LeGrand’s football career ended in 2010 while making a tackle, when he suffered fractures of two vertebrae and a serious spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed.
LeGrand will hold a ceremonial spot on the team without getting paid. He will, though, retain his old number, 52, with Tampa Bay.
“I always wanted to go to the NFL,” he said. “It may not be the circumstances that I wanted, but I’m there. I had no idea, … Read More
On November 7th, 1991 I recently turned 10 years old, had poor cursive skills, disliked girls and had fallen in absolute love with an orange ball and a ten foot hoop.
Every day after school it would be myself and 3 other guys from Dalton, Pennsylvania lacing them up on the Dalton Courts. We would play 2-on-2 into the darkness but one constant was that before every contest we proclaim who we were.
‘Ok, I’m Magic!’
‘Alright, guess I’m Barkley.’
Yes, it sounds like we were impersonating them, but for 3 hours every day after school we truly felt we were them!
And that would be how each game would start. And every night my little … Read More
