This book was incredibly inspiring to me, i mean, too be honest who would ever of thought that Barry Sanders, one of the best running-backs in the history of football, would ever have trouble starting or even getting playtime in his career as a minor. This book really showed me that Hard work really does pay off. until i read this book i didnt know that Barry Sanders had trouble with Colleges accepting him for being Too Small, but now all those coaches that didnt want him are ashamed they didnt pick him, because now Barry Sanders is in the hall of fame. Barry Sanders is one of my favorite athletes besides Terrell Davis, in which i read both there books. But Barrys story is very interesting because he did everything like he wanted to do it. He had some minors here and there for example when Ron Chismar the coach from Wichita state university said We dont need another midget on our team.
