Praise for the series:
“My gymnastics medals were the result of countless hours of training and practice. But success comes, too, from an understanding of priorities. As shown by the wonderful stories in the Count on Me: Sports series, athletics can not only reveal character, but also hopefully inspire it.”—Shannon Miller, two-time Olympic gold medalist
“I was a professional football player for fifteen seasons, but by far my most important job is being the father of two sports-loving daughters. The true tales in Brad Herzog’s books show how the games we play can teach seriously important life lessons to kids.”—Jake Delhomme, former Super Bowl quarterback for the Carolina Panthers
“As a longtime coach of amateur and professional athletes, I know that sports is about far more than winning and losing. It is about character and courage. It is about doing the right thing, even in the heat of the moment. The Count on Me: Sports series celebrates sportsmen and sportswomen who are role models—not only as athletes, but as human beings.”—Dave Sarachan, MLS associate head coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy
