May 21st 2013:The Jersey Effect

Darrin and I will discuss the book he co-authored, The Jersey Effect: Beyond the World Championship with Hunter Smith {12-year NFL alumni} with Foreword by Tony Dungy. Darrin conceptualized The Jersey Effect years ago when he wondered what motivated some athletes like Tony Dungy to use their professional platform in sports, their jersey, to make a positive impact both on and off the field. A few years later he invited NFL punter Hunter Smith, while he was still playing in the NFL, to co-author the book and help him explore the many ways that sports shape culture.

Darrin conceptualized The Jersey Effect years ago when he wondered what motivated some athletes like Tony Dungy to use their professional platform in sports, their jersey, to make a positive impact both on and off the field. A few years later he invited NFL punter Hunter Smith, while he was still playing in the NFL, to co-author the book and help him explore the many ways that sports shape culture. With the help of Hunter’s world champion teammates and coaches, The Jersey Effect takes a look into the hearts and minds of athletes who achieved Super Bowl success and examines the battles they faced. It presents the stories of champions who desired to reflect glory back to God by using their "jersey" and the platform God had given them to make a positive difference in the world. Even so, sometimes their great intentions were hijacked by pride, materialism, distractions, and deficiencies within their own character that were never truly understood until the ultimate success had come their way. Intended for players, coaches, and parents that want to learn and in turn teach important lessons about how to properly align their love of sports with God's heart, The Jersey Effect advocates for a full 360 degrees of influence: coach on player, player on coach, player on parents, parents on player, and team on community. The Jersey Effect demonstrates how to pursue the ultimate prize - a goal that has little to do with winning a championship ring and everything to do with how we can have a positive effect on those around us through the sports we love.
