The Carolina Crusaders had all of their coaches read “Lead For God’s Sake” by Todd G. Gongwer last season and it changed the way we approached coaching our team. Take a look at the story about how the book changed Urban Meyer that just posted on ESPN. It really cool to see how God used this book to reach so many people through a parable about a coach. We highly recommend it to all of the Crusaders coaches, players and parents.
How Urban Meyer found his balance
A Championship Run!
By Todd G. Gongwer
With all the hype around the upcoming College Football National Championship I thought I’d share with you a few cool things happening in the world of LEAD…for God’s Sake.
Ohio State’s Head Football Coach Urban Meyer has continued to be a huge part of this journey, and as he prepares for another shot at the top, he has continued to reference the book as one of the key “game changers” in his life leading up to this point. Below are comments he shared at the National Championship Media Day, after being asked about LEAD…for God’s Sake and how often he references it.
I’m so appreciative of his genuine heart for this message! But most importantly, it’s been an incredible blessing to see the consistent peace in his eyes as he’s climbed back to this spot!
Stay tuned over the next few days for stories I’ve been interviewed for on popular platforms such as ESPN.com (story will be posted Sunday and Monday), Fansided.com (a part of SI.com (Sports Illustrated)), and I’ll also be live on the Doug Gottlieb Show Monday at 5:00PM. Don’t forget to tune in!
Thanks again for helping us share the message!
