“Game On”; a fitting title to this almost autobiographical life story of Emmitt Smith, written in his own words. He shares with us his roots; growing up in a low income family in Pensacola Florida, to becoming a Dallas Cowboy professional football player and Hall of Fame member.

This is one man, who has shown in his story, his inner strength, determination, faith, positive attitude, and more. You might say, “He has all the right stuff”. He has learned so much about life, not only through his family and upbringing, but also throughout his years of playing football and having team spirit, plus a desire to be a winner.

I found this to be a wonderfully powerful read, which I was not expect…
