New Release: The Jersey Effect

Hunter Smith, twelve-year NFL punter and Super Bowl XLI Champion, partners with Darrin Gray of All-Pro Dad, a national fatherhood program, and Stephen Copeland of Sports Spectrum, to write “The Jersey Effect.” Seeking to help athletes, parents, and coaches gain a proper perspective on sports, they use real-life examples and biblical principles to address negative cultural trends and illuminate the truth and lies in athletics.

Fame and fortune can hijack even the most well-intentioned players, feeding them subtle lies that football is a god.
