Earnest Byner is one of the most accomplished running backs of all time. This two-time Super Bowl champion and former all pro retired after a 14-year NFL career ranked 16th on the NFL’s all-time rushing list with 8,261 yards and 56 touchdowns. His 13,442 all-purpose yards rank him 55th all time. He’s in the Baltimore Ravens Ring of Honor and the East Carolina Hall of Fame.
But he’s most known for the fumble, a play that prevented his team from advancing to the Super Bowl. Byner had to lean on his faith and family to get through the long and bumpy road following the fumble. His book provides intimate insight from his high school, college and professional football experiences. His aim is to help readers blend life and football philosophies in hopes of reaching fulfillment. The book is crafted so the reader can take notes and draw upon her or her own experiences. Long time NFL coach Jimmy Raye wrote in the book’s forward, “Earnest Byner displayed confidence, fortitude, pride, persistence, fearlessness, and focus” throughout his career. “The strength of his convictions and character leaves valuable legacy” on and off-the-field. Our hope is that authors like Byner will inspire you to get off the ground and achieve your purpose.
