Abstract:

Football hero Jerry Rice grew up in Crawford, Mississippi, the son of a brick mason. He developed his hands by catching the bricks that his brothers threw at him. While working for his father, he learned discipline, speed, and the meaning of hard work. He went on to become the greatest wide receiver in football history. "Go Long!" is his autobiographical narrative, including the locker-room scoop on the nature of the game, the players, and the coaches. But it is also much more than that. While sharing the secrets of his early success, Jerry Rice also discusses how to live fully and meaningfully in the second half of our lives. His inspirational story proves that, even when the rules change, the game can be just as rewarding. Jerry Rice was selected to the Pro Bowl thirteen times and won three Super Bowls in his twenty NFL seasons.
