Hunter Smith, twelve-year NFL punter and Super Bowl XLI Champion, partners with Darrin Gray of All-Pro Dad, a national fatherhood program, 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.
Intended for players, coaches, and parents that want to learn and in turn teach important lessons about how to properly align their love of sports with God’s heart, The Jersey Effect advocates for a full 360 degrees of influence: coach on player, player on coach, player on parents, parents on player, and team on community. The Jersey Effect demonstrates how to pursue the ultimate prize—a goal that has little to do with winning a championship ring and everything to do with how we can have a positive effect on those around us through the sports we love.
