Description


The Game That Almost Broke Me  is the inspirational story of Tavarski Wallace, an ambitious player in the game of achieving a spot in the NFL, and a resilient player in the turbulent, challenging, and sometimes unfair game of life. The intriguing evolution of "Taz" Wallace is remarkable in this book-long journey, which is marked by milestones of overcoming adversity – from resolving struggles academically, supporting his hard-working single mother, to ultimately managing the unforgiving politics of professional football. Taz Wallace's story is uplifting and inspiring.

From modest beginnings in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Taz documents a series of key relationships which shaped him as an individual and helped fuel his dreams of becoming a linebacker in the NFL.

Great read I started this book, and didn't stop. I've know Taz for almost 15 years now, matter of fact, he was the best man in our wedding. I have always cherished my relationship with my husbands best friend, but I now have a deeper understanding of why Taz is such a great man. I knew he went through some things in his life, but never knew he had very broken moments because he never showed it. So very proud of you Taz, and it takes a lot of courage to reveal such raw emotion during the vulnerable times in your life. I can't say enough good things about this - Love you! -Steph Sue Read more
