“When someone gets hit on the field, that’s the No. 1 thing they want to do-put the thumbs up to let everyone know it’s not that bad. But I couldn’t do it.” That was one of many things ex- Buffalo Bill’s tight end Kevin Everett said in his all tell book, “Standing Tall,” written by Sam Carchidi. The story is a reiteration of a gargantuan 25 year old man who stood 6ft 4in tall and weighed 255 pounds, in Kevin Everett, and his struggles off the field because of a bone crushing hit he took on the ...more

Standing Tall: The Kevin Everett Story by Sam Carchidi was a Tremendous book. When I first read what it was going to be about I knew it was going to be a powerful book.

This book would be perfect for someone who is facing adversity in their life because it would help them stay strong no matter how low you are. This book helped me understand that I may think some things are hard but it could always ...more

I was very intrigued by the hypothermia method they used to treat his injury, but was disappointed to not hear more about his life and time with the ...more

I enjoyed finding out details of Kevin's injury and recovery but I felt like some of the writing could have been better. It seemed to jump around in a few places, to the point that I would have to go back and reread to see who someone was that was being referred to.

Wow- what an inspiration to anyone and everyone. It was so hard not to cry from all of the emotions expressed. Kevin has such a great support team (Team Kevin). I only hope for the best for him and his future wife, and his continued success in walking/ running ect.

The book was very thrilling and shocking. It felt like i was watching a movie in my mind. Will Kevin Everett's life ever be the same? Will he get back up and finish the game? Find out!

This book is for any football fan. It gave me chills reading about what he felt when he was laying on the field. It is a true inspiring story of strength, faith and family.
