About the Author
Blending stories of the author’s stint as head coach of the Cornhuskers with a strong coaching philosophy and view of life firmly rooted in Christian principles, Faith in the Game explores the reasons for the Cornhuskers’ amazing achievements as a team – and the faith in God that has been the source of Osborne’s strength. In over thirty-seven years of coaching one of the nation’s leading college football teams, Osborne has learned much about motivating a team to win – both on and off the field. In his new book, he applies these invaluable lessons and values to life.
Both a memoir and a motivational guide, Faith in the Game reveals all the traits required for successful life management and teamwork – such as loyalty, perseverance, integrity, strategy, character, faith, and old-fashioned “sweat equity.” And it tackles illuminating subjects such as his controversial 1995 season and his team’s phenomenally successful Unity Council approach, in which representatives from each part of the team form problem-solving units. And he explains how these strategies can be put to work successfully in other areas of life.
Conveyed in his own captivating, trademark tone, Osborne’s inspiring and motivational words will be cheered by readers from all walks of life.
