Making Men, by Ben Jacobs, the author of Overtime, gives boys the tools they will need to become men of substance. A touching and honest story, Making Men addresses the dysfunction in the father-son relationship.
Making Men, set in the ultra-competitive world of Texas high school football, is a true story about a code of conduct that Jacobs and the boys that he coaches try to live by. A love story, a journey from wounded child to becoming a man, Making Men embraces the fragility of the human spirit.
Jacobs, who is a high school football coach, shares his deepest emotions. He is obsessed with the dream of creating men built for others. Jacobs' dream encounters many fascinating people:
Justin Warren, a college football player with a heart of gold, who survives one of the most terrifying experiences any young man could have ...Yuriel Wallenstein, a survivor of the Holocaust ...Olivia Williams, a successful business executive, whose faith draws her out of extreme wealth into being a teacher ...
"Every high school across the nation should have Making Men. Ben saves lives."-- NEIL STRATTON, INSIDE THE LEAGUE PRESIDENT
