First came the bestselling book, then the Oscar-nominated movie, but until now, Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy have never told their tale in their own words. For Leigh Anne and Sean, it all begins with family. Leigh Anne, the daughter of a tough U.S. Marshal, decided early on that her mission was to raise children who would become "cheerful givers." Sean, who grew up poor, believed that one day he could provide a home that would be "a place of miracles." Together, they raised two children who shared their deep Christian faith and their commitment to making a difference. Then one day Leigh Anne met a homeless African-American boy named Michael Oher and decided that her family could be his.--From publisher description
The real all Americans : the team that changed a game, a people, a nation by Sally Jenkins( Book )
10 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Journalist/author Jenkins revives a forgotten piece of history and crafts an inspirational story about a Native American football team that is as much about football as Lance Armstrong's book was about a bike. If you guessed that Yale or Harvard ruled the college gridiron in 1911 and 1912, you'd be wrong. The most popular team belonged to an institution called the Carlisle Indian Industrial School. Its story begins with Lt. Col. Richard Henry Pratt, a fierce abolitionist who believed that Native Americans deserved a place in American society. In 1879, Pratt made a dangerous journey to the Dakota Territory to recruit Carlisle's first students. Years later, three students approached Pratt with the notion of forming a football team. Pratt liked the idea, and in less than twenty years the Carlisle football team was defeating their Ivy League opponents and in the process changing the way the game was played.--From publisher description

A coach's life by Dean Smith( Book )
6 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When Dean Smith retired from the University of North Carolina in 1997 as the most successful college basketball coach in history, he left behind a long list of staggering statistics, including seventeen Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season titles, thirteen ACC tournament championships, twenty-three consecutive NCAA tournament bids, two national championships, NCAA records for twenty-five-win seasons and consecutive trips to the tournament Sweet 16 (thirteen), an Olympic gold medal, and twenty-four first-round NBA draft picks. A special panel assembled by ABC and ESPN named him one of the seven greatest coaches of the twentieth century in any sport. Another measure of Dean Smith's legacy is his profound impact on the lives of the players he coached. From Michael Jordan to the last man on the bench of his least gifted team, Dean Smith's players all credit him with forging in them the values of discipline, respect, camaraderie, and fortitude that laid the groundwork for their success in basketball and in life. Ninety-eight percent of his players earned college degrees, and a high percentage went on to graduate and professional schools. In A Coach's Life, for the first time, Dean Smith tells the full story of his fabled career. With warmth, humor, and unflinching candor, he gives readers the best seat in the house, the view from the bench, for all of the memorable games, players, coaches, and teams, including North Carolina's fierce rivalries, their darkest hours, and their greatest triumphs. He explains his basketball philosophy and its sources, the origins of his many innovations to the game, and his thoughts on the issues and challenges facing college basketball today. He talks about his roots in family and faith, the source of much of his strength in taking controversial stands on social issues over the years, such as desegregating the Carolina basketball team in the early 1960s. He relates incisive leadership lessons distilled from five decades of showing young men how to win the right way, on the court and off. A Coach's Life is a book about basketball filled with wisdom about living. To read it is to understand why Dean Smith made everyone around him better, and to see that even in the most competitive of arenas, doing good and doing well can be one and the same thing

Raise the roof : the inspiring inside story of the Tennessee Lady Vols' undefeated 1997-98 season by Pat Head Summitt( Book )
5 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""It wasn't a team. It was a tent revival." So says Pat Summitt, the legendary coach whose Tennessee Lady Vols entered the 1997-98 season aiming for an almost unprecedented "three-peat" of NCAA championships. Raise the Roof takes you right inside the locker room of her amazing team, whose inspired mixture of gifted freshmen and seasoned stars produced a standard of play that would change the game of women's basketball forever." "The 1997-98 campaign started innocently enough. One Saturday in August, a simple pickup game turned into a amazing display of basketball brilliance - freshmen against established players, and with barely a shot missed by either side. Suddenly Pat Summitt glimpsed the future: fast, aggressive, and hugely talented, this might be the team she'd worked her whole career to coach." "As 1997 turned into 1998, Pat Summitt began privately to admit to herself that this team had changed her: these kids were so lovable, funny, and eager to please that she simply had to let them into her heart. Along the way, the Lady Vols were redefining what young women were capable of, trading in old definitions of femininity for new ones - in short, they were keeping score. And by the time they entered the NCAA Final Four tournament in Kansas City, Summitt found herself believing the impossible: despite all the distractions, the 1997-98 Lady Vols could go undefeated, and, in doing so, raise the roof off the sport of women's basketball."--Jacket
