Item description for Charlie Ward: Winning by His Grace (Role Model Series) by Charlie Ward & Joe Cooney...
American have always possessed a fanatical fascination and adulation for those athletes talented and blessed enough to make it in the world of professional sports. And most of these "star" ballplayers revel in the limelight and relish playing the role of "celebrity". In Charlie Ward's case, however, one finds an enigma of the sports world. The former Florida State University football star, Heisman Trophy winner, and now a professional basketball player in his third year with the New York Knicks is the opposite of everything that is associated today with what it means to be a celebrity.
In a world known more for loud "trash talk" and egotistical boasting, 27-year old Charlie Ward stands out with his reserved, unassuming nature and lifestyle. He is a quiet man. A man at peace, maintaining a lifestyle that is based on high ethical standards, integrity and character. The combination of these virtues and his firm belief in God have created in him a strong and focused disposition. There is nothing "in your face" about Charlie Ward. He is not a flashy star, and he doesn't seek the spotlight. But he does eagerly accept the responsibility of a role model. Which makes him unique and special.
