Product Description

The Pep Talk is the story of a fictitious high school football team with a 24-game losing streak. On the night of their last game of the season, a stranger walks into their locker room and delivers a pep talk that leads them to a victorious win against the undefeated state champions. Although the plot and characters are fictional, the pep talk itself is based on what author and counselor Kevin Elko says when he addresses NFL teams and Division One Football teams. Through The Pep Talk you'll learn the business of winning and how to reap the benefits from a great pep talk!

Publisher's Description

Coach Jack Morris was at a complete loss. One week after being hung in effigy for leading the beloved Lincoln Lions to their twenty-fourth straight defeat, Morris was bracing for the Jacktown Giants. Gians by name and by record, they were heralded as the best prep team Ohio had ever seen. Coach Morris was just waiting for the axe to fall.

But something bizarre happened when a stranger requested permission to deliver the pregame pep talk. With nothing to lose, Coach Morris agreed. No one could have predicted the result: A motivated team, fighting for pride, fighting for their town, fighting for each other.

Though just a fictional football story, The Pep Talk contains universal and inspirational words of truth that apply to every walk of life. Author Kevin Elko makes a living giving the same talk contained in these pages to corporations and athletic teams around the country. Like the characters in this story, Elko's pep talks have changed lives and helped drive teams to national and world championship victories.

Empower yourself for success. Empower yourself with The Pep Talk.
