Item description for One Yard Short: Turning Your Defeats into Victories by Les Steckel...

Overview
Coach Les Steckel understands that life is difficult. It's marked by disappointments and defeats. But what's important is what you do with those defeats. One Yard Short is the amazing story of Les Steckel. A coach for 32 years, with 23 of those seasons coaching in the NFL, Steckel has been through his shares of ups and downs, having experienced the pain and disappointment of job loss time and time again in a way that only professional sports coaches know. A lesser man would have given up and become bitter, but in the midst of each disappointment, each "failure," God was there, picking him up, dusting him off, telling Coach Steckel that He believed in him and that there was a special plan for his life. In One Yard Short, Coach Steckel teaches readers through his own life lessons and football experiences how to hear God's voice in the midst of disappointments and failures.

Les Steckel's Journey From Coaching To Ministry Is Very Worthwhile Reading  Oct 19, 2008
I remembered Les Steckel when he replaced and after a one-year disaster, was replaced by Bud Grant as the coach of Minnesota Vikings.

I was suprised by Steckel's candidness as he mentioned his metamorphosis as a person who went from driven coach to repentant Christian through is work with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. His story is a story of perspective.
 
outstanding book!  Jan 26, 2008
Coach Steckel has written an inspiring and entertaining book. I'm a football coach myself and can relate to the highs and lows of the profession as Coach Steckel explains in this book. Coaches if you want a book to lift you and show you how God can lead a man thru the highs and lows of life this is it. God bless you Coach Steckel.
 
Five Star Reading  May 22, 2007
This was a GREAT book! It sounded like something I would like because I am a huge Titans fan & watched the super bowl when Kevin Dyson needed that extra yard, so I asked for it for Christmas. I couldn't put it down. I put off finishing it though because I felt like I had a connection to Les & his wife,and I knew he didn't have another book out. It was very inspirational. Football fan or not, anyone who likes fair play & God will love this easy to read book! Thanks to Les for taking time to write it!
 
Amazing!!!  Jan 17, 2007
If you are a Christian and you coach any sport, especially football you should take a look at his book. I was so moved by it I was on the brink of tears about 2-3 times. It talks about letting God control your life, and if you put full complete faith in HIM as your savior, you will be able to live and lead a very gratifying life. I highly recommend this book.
