Becky4 Stars Out Of 5Highly recommendedAugust 9, 2018BeckyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Why on earth would someone who doesnt like football read this Walk On by Ben Malcolmson? Thats because this is one of those books that is so much more than about football. You dont have to be a football fan to enjoy this book. This is the inspirational and powerful story of how the Lord bought Ben Malcolmson to Him and used him throughout his life in unexpected ways.
Were talking about an underdog story that no one would have imagined watching the author achieve the goals he accomplished. The author comes across as relatable and humble as he shares his honest story of all of the ups and downs of finding himself on the USC Trojans team.
One of my favorite stories, which is probably one of the most powerful, is where the author shares about hiding a bunch of Bibles in each of the team members lockers for Christmas only to be discouraged when he finds them tossed in shreds all over the book and in the trash. I think one of the coolest things about that story is that we think were doing something good, get discouraged when it doesnt go our way, to not see the entire picture of how God used that until years later.
I especially enjoyed how the author encourages and inspires his readers to stay faithful to God and how God can use the most unexpected and least likely opportunities to for His glory. He also ends each chapter with a short lesson and a scripture.
Highly recommended whether you are a football fan or not.

TammyK5 Stars Out Of 5How Does a Pee Wee Football Drop Out Make it to the NFL?July 17, 2018TammyKQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This book by author, Ben Malcolmson, is a MUST read. Seriously! How can a non-football playing man become a walk on for the highly acclaimed University of Southern California Trojans? He's a journalism major for goodness sake! His story is quite inspiring as well as encouraging. One of my favorite quotes (and there are many!) from the book is this: "No matter what has happened, your past has no bearing on God's calling for you . . . Your pedigree doesn't contain you, your previous decisions don't define you, and your limitations don't hold you back. Will you leave your past behind and set aside your supposed shortcomings to move forward into the magnificent future God has for you?" (Page 71)
If you're a football fan, you'll love the story. If you're wondering if God is in the little detailsthis book will show you just how big He is. And if you love a heart piercing story of a great friendship and support system, then here's that book.
I have received this book from WaterBrookMultnomah with no expectations in return. I have chosen to share my honest opinion on this book.
pattistep5 Stars Out Of 5Entertaining, InspirationalJuly 17, 2018pattistepQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Even when your life reaches its bleakest point and you face seemingly insurmountable circumstances, God has plans for you that you would not believe, even if He told you. (Quote from Ben Malcolmson, page 200.)
This book by Ben Malcolmson is certainly inspirational. His account of becoming an unintentional walk-on player for the USC Trojan football team is entertaining to read. However, his story of growing in faith and trust in God is the true heart of this book. Hes honest about his doubts, fears, failures, and successes. At the end of each chapter, theres a Walk On section that includes scripture verses that focus on the spiritual lesson he learned during a particular time in his life.
Hes completely convinced that God is always working behind the scenes in our lives and especially during the times when we cant see the next step ahead. The account of how Mario Danelo came to Christ shortly before his untimely death brought me to tears. I was encouraged to follow God in all things both large and small and leave the results to Him.
Id especially recommend this story for a book study with teenagers or young adults who are searching for Gods will in their lives.
Theres no foul language or embarrassing scenes in this book, which makes it great reading for all ages.
