Reggie White may be my favorite player ever, and I never watched him play. (Skip to the bottom for a quick rant on that, as well as most of the other football thoughts I have on this.)
What you've got in this book are the concentrated effusions of one of the most relentlessly positive and passionate people I've ever read. I mean, there are forests of exclamation points to saw through. I tend to think that this style adds to the likeability and even believability of the narrative, however: if you'

Reggie White is a name that is associated with Pro Football, particularly with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Green Bay Packers. This is a book on him...and his life in and outside of football.

The majority of the book is on his Pro Football career up until 1997 (as this is when the book was written) and tells of his rise from a kid in Chattanooga, TN to his Pro Football days (and subsequent fame) with the Green Bay Packers, a move which at first seems odd, but in the end was the best move he co

Filled with intrigue, miracles, faith, conviction, humor and so much more, this autobiogrpahy will encourage you in your Christian walk.

At 6 foot 5, weighing over 300 pounds (and easily able to toss opponents with his one-arm signature move on his way to crushing quarterbacks) Reggie White was arguably the best NFL defensive end of all time. More important than all that though, Reggie was a bold witness for Christ.

Reggie passed away in 2004, but not before making his mark in the world for the k

Reggie White In The Trenches is definitely the best book I have ever read. This book is very appealing to me considering, I am a man of God, and I want to be in the NFL. He has a great life story, and explains it very well in this book.I know someone who was very close to him before he past away, and be able to hear his perspective of his life and someone that was actually there perspective leaves me without words. I go to back to the book to look for encouragement and life advice regularly, ...more

I'm a huge football fan, and I saw a special on the NFL channel that highlighted the Eagles team with Reggie White. The documentary discussed Reggie's faith and I wondered if he'd written any books. To my delight, he'd written several!

I really enjoyed reading about Reggie's life, faith, and years "in the trenches" of football. The play-by-play of particular games felt a little heavy, but overall, I found this book to be inspiring, entertaining, and informative.

It may not be the best book ever, but I was a kid. I loved the Green Bay Packers, and I loved Reggie White. Therefore, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Great autobiography of Football legend Reggie White. Only Green Bay Packer that I could root for. Reggie White died a few years back and has been inducted into the Football Hall of Fame.

As a Packer fan, had to read this. Was a good book. A good man who died way too soon.
