I loved how David used strong words to put you there with him to see him achieve and screw up. It really seemed like he enjoyed putting this book together the way he writes it. He wasn't afraid to tell you everything he has been through and his mistakes he made in the past. David was an alcoholic and he would leave his son and girlfriend and he has been in jail for have marijiana. He became really religious and quit drinking.

Bought this book after seeing David on Hannity. I read it before I gave it to my 2 sons. I really enjoyed it and think it is an inspiring story for young men especially if they are heading down the wrong path in life.
Great Book Dec 22, 2008
David Tyree's story is about God's redeeming love & power. When God gets ahold of your life, He can do wonderful things. I am so glad to see David write about his life, not glossing over the bad stuff but in the end, David gives all the glory to his savior, Jesus Christ and Lord. Amen!!!!!

RICK "SHAQ" GOLDSTEIN SAYS: "SHE SHOUTED TO THE SPIRIT IN DAVID, "WHAT IS YOUR NAME?" "DAVID ANSWERED: "I AM SATAN!" Aug 12, 2008
On February 3, 2008, in Super Bowl XLII, David Tyree, special teams player and wide receiver for the NFL New York Giants made the greatest most ** MIRACULOUS ** catch in Super Bowl history. Leaping into the air with one of the greatest safety's in modern NFL history, Rodney Harrison of the New England Patriot's all over him, David pinned the ball to his helmet with the fingertips of his right hand... and crashed to the ground without dropping the pass! This was the pivotal play that led to a subsequent touchdown, which led the underdog Giant's to upset the heavily favored, and previously undefeated Patriot's and win the World Championship-Super Bowl!
Immediately upon the completion of this historic victory... and at every chance since... David steadfastly chants the following unwavering mantra:
"I GIVE THE CREDIT TO G-D! NOT ONLY DID HE ALLOW ME TO BE ON A SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM, BUT HE ALSO INTERVENED AND GAVE ME A MIRACLE BEFORE THE EYES OF THE WORLD."
This is David's life story, which he shares with the reader unflinchingly, in the retelling of all his missteps that eventually led him to being "reborn"... and dedicating his life to Christ. The reader will learn of his drug use... his blackout drunk alcoholism... his drug arrest... his wanton dishonoring of the mother of his children (Leilah) with repetitive womanizing... and even passing a venereal disease on to his future wife. On the night of his child's birth, David came home drunk... purposely tried to trip Leilah... and then passed out on the floor.
Finally one night, when David came to pick up his son; Leilah's cousin Angie, who had recently rededicated her life to the Lord, "looked into David's eyes, and he seemed to "not be there". She said that she saw the devil in David's eyes." She said he was acting like two different people with two different personalities. She called her Mother on the phone and said: "MA, I THINK YOU NEED TO COME OVER AND PRAY FOR DAVID. SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH HIM." Her Mother came over and "she got fed up with the spirit that was using David and looked into David's eyes and demanded, "STOP IT AND SIT DOWN, IN THE NAME OF JESUS!" "David stood stiff as a board with a blank look on his face and then obeyed her words, sitting down and looking straight ahead. When she began to lead us in prayer. David slid off of the sofa and started moving across the floor like a snake. Nobody was ready for what they witnessed that day. David seemed to be in some kind of trance and something had taken over his body."
"She shouted to the spirit in David, "WHAT IS YOUR NAME?"
"In a grossly deep voice that was not David's, out of his mouth came words everyone in the room heard: "I AM SATAN!"
David winds up in the psychiatric ward at East Orange General Hospital, and the frightening heartbreak... future conversion... rebirth... family... complete dedication to the glory of the Lord... and yes... the "MIRACULOUS" catch in the Super Bowl... all lay ahead for David and the reader.
The entire book is dedicated to David's Mother who unfortunately passed away before David's Super Bowl glory, but he knows she watched it from Heaven. Part of his dedication reads as follows: "I WILL CONTINUE TO CELEBRATE YOUR LIFE UNTIL I MEET YOU ONE DAY IN GLORY. YOU BLESSED ME WITH LIFE... AND NOW I DEDICATE THE STORY OF MY LIFE TO YOU!
I LOVE YOU WITH ALL OF MY HEART. - DAVID
About the last one-third of the book is devoted to spiritual subjects including: Other NFL players who have openly given G-d the glory in their lives... Cycle of Success with the Lord... The Ingredients of Greatness... Physical workouts tied to prayer... Dietary recommendations.... Dreams and Destiny... From My Heart To You... and A Prayer For Your Destiny.
It should also be noted that included in this book are sixteen pages of the most beautifully reproduced glossy color photographs of David and his family, of which the quality... I have never seen an equal of... in a book of this type.
