Do You Have a Game Plan?

Premier agent Drew Pittman loves sports. Maybe even more than you do. But an experience early in his management career convinced him that a life of significance is about faith, family, and football--and always in that order. So how do you make significance your game plan?

Competitive sports are filled with lessons about motivation, perseverance, hard work, and collaboration--and these lessons are powerfully transferable to everyday life. Yet few men apply them to the most important arena they'll ever play in: their home.

In First Team Dad, Drew Pittman shares the principles that can change the game in your family, straight from a sports insider who has field-tested each and every one with his home team. With heart-pounding stories of unforgettable plays and one-in-a-million players, First Team Dad is your ticket to create a legacy of significance in your family.

"It's my hope that by reading First Team Dad you will be motivated to do a better job of leading your family and that you will reach out to other men you know to help them catch this vision."--Tony Dungy, former NFL head coach and bestselling author

"Knowing Drew, I've been encouraged and challenged by his example and wisdom--read this book so you can get to know this man as well."--John Schneider, executive vice president and general manager, Seattle Seahawks

"To the football fan's delight, Drew shares behind-the-scenes stories about his experiences with famous players and coaches in order to demonstrate practical points about having a strong family. I believe every man who reads this book will walk away inspired and will have a game plan for his own family."--Robert Morris, founding senior pastor, Gateway Church, Dallas Texas; bestselling author, The Blessed Life

Drew Pittman's book First Team Dad will be a benefit to fathers as they lead their families. As coaches, we believe in fundamentals-and that is exactly what Drew recommends to those who wish to become the fathers they should be and the leaders of their homes.
Bob Stoops, Head Football Coach, Oklahoma Sooners; BCS National Champions and Orange Bowl Victors, 2000

First Team Dad uses the principles of football and applies them to leadership in the home. This book provides insight without being preachy or judgmental. It is a playbook for any family to improve its home.
Bobby Bowden, Former Head Football Coach, Florida State Seminoles; NCAA Record Holder, Most Career Wins and Bowl Wins by a Division I FBS Coach

Coaches have to consciously make an effort to become what Drew Pittman describes in his new book, First Team Dad. There is no greater satisfaction than seeing your players become the kind of men they are capable of being; and there is no greater joy than teaching your own children to develop a positive set of values and seeing them live by that value system as adults.
Mack Brown, Former Head Football Coach, University of Texas at Austin Longhorns; recipient of the Paul "Bear" Bryant Award for Coach of the Year, 2006

As a collegiate football coach and executive director of the American Football Coaches Association, I have long held a strong belief that coaches become surrogate fathers to many of their players. However, a coach's roles as father and husband in his home are his first responsibilities. Drew Pittman's book, First Team Dad, is not only a great resource for coaches and teachers, but also for fathers out there who are striving to become positive leaders in their home.
Grant Teaff, Executive Director, American Football Coaches Association; Former Head Football Coach, Baylor University Bears College Football Hall of Fame, 2001
