The path to NFL stardom was never easy for Tony Romo. In high school, major colleges didn’t recruit him. After college, he wasn’t selected in the NFL draft. And when he earned a spot on the Dallas Cowboys roster, he served as the backup quarterback for three years before finally getting a chance to prove himself as a starter. Today, Tony is one of the biggest stars in the NFL, but he knows that he never would have made it to the pros without the help and support of his coaches in high school and college. That’s why Tony makes sure he helps others whenever he can.

In Tony Romo, kids will follow Tony’s inspiring journey to the NFL and also learn how he’s made a difference off the field. Whether it’s his football camp for kids in his hometown of Burlington, Wisconsin or his work with the Make-A-Wish foundation, Tony strives to help others achieve their dreams. Large, full-color action photos and engaging text will keep kids turning the pages for more.

Tony Romo

These feel-good books introduce stars who make as much of a difference off the field as on. Each one begins with play-by-play narration that features the athlete in a life-changing game. The man’s early abilities are then described, beginning with high school and college, and going on to cover his recruitment into professional sports. Sandler describes how Peterson was a star player early on, whereas Romo was not considered a great catch, even in college. Subsequent chapters feature each athlete’s desire to give back to his community through civic groups and charitable organizations such as the Special Olympics. Concluding fact sheets provide additional tidbits of information. Though each book features large color photos on every page, those depicting the players’ work with organizations that help children realize their dreams are especially poignant. These titles convey a positive message about athletes in a time when so many are featured in the news negatively, and they are sure to inspire readers.
