First came the bestselling book, then the Oscar-nominated movie, but until now, Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy have never told their tale in their own words. For Leigh Anne and Sean, it all begins with family. Leigh Anne, the daughter of a tough U.S. Marshal, decided early on that her mission was to raise children who would become "cheerful givers." Sean, who grew up poor, believed that one day he could provide a home that would be "a place of miracles." Together, they raised two children who shared their deep Christian faith and their commitment to making a difference. Then one day Leigh Anne met a homeless African-American boy named Michael Oher and decided that her family could be his.--From publisher description

The real all Americans : the team that changed a game, a people, a nation by Sally Jenkins( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journalist/author Jenkins revives a forgotten piece of history and crafts an inspirational story about a Native American football team that is as much about football as Lance Armstrong's book was about a bike. If you guessed that Yale or Harvard ruled the college gridiron in 1911 and 1912, you'd be wrong. The most popular team belonged to an institution called the Carlisle Indian Industrial School. Its story begins with Lt. Col. Richard Henry Pratt, a fierce abolitionist who believed that Native Americans deserved a place in American society. In 1879, Pratt made a dangerous journey to the Dakota Territory to recruit Carlisle's first students. Years later, three students approached Pratt with the notion of forming a football team. Pratt liked the idea, and in less than twenty years the Carlisle football team was defeating their Ivy League opponents and in the process changing the way the game was played.--From publisher description

A coach's life by Dean Smith( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legendary University of North Carolina basketball coach Dean Smith tells the full story of his fabled career, and shares the life lessons taught and learned over forty years of unparalleled success as a coach and mentor. For almost forty years, Dean Smith coached the University of North Carolina men's basketball program with unsurpassed success- on the court and in shaping young men's lives. In his long-awaited memoir, he reflects on the great games, teams, players, strategies, and rivalries that defined his career, and explains the philosophy that guided him. There's a lot more to life than basketball- though some may beg to differ- but there's a lot more to basketball than basketball, and this is a book about basketball filled with wisdom about life. Dean Smith insisted that the fundamentals of good basketball were the fundamentals of character- passion, discipline, focus, selflessness, and responsibility- and he strove to unite his teams in pursuit of those values. To read this book is to understand why Dean Smith changed the lives of the players he coached, from Michael Jordan, who calls him his second father and who never played a single NBA game without wearing a pair of UNC basketball shorts under his uniform, to the last man on the bench of his least talented team. We all wish we had a coach like Dean Smith in our lives, and now we will have that chance. From the Hardcover edition

Raise the roof : the inspiring inside story of the Tennessee Lady Vols' undefeated 1997-98 season by Pat Head Summitt( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""It wasn't a team. It was a tent revival." So says Pat Summitt, the legendary coach whose Tennessee Lady Vols entered the 1997-98 season aiming for an almost unprecedented "three-peat" of NCAA championships. Raise the Roof takes you right inside the locker room of her amazing team, whose inspired mixture of gifted freshmen and seasoned stars produced a standard of play that would change the game of women's basketball forever." "The 1997-98 campaign started innocently enough. One Saturday in August, a simple pickup game turned into a amazing display of basketball brilliance - freshmen against established players, and with barely a shot missed by either side. Suddenly Pat Summitt glimpsed the future: fast, aggressive, and hugely talented, this might be the team she'd worked her whole career to coach." "As 1997 turned into 1998, Pat Summitt began privately to admit to herself that this team had changed her: these kids were so lovable, funny, and eager to please that she simply had to let them into her heart. Along the way, the Lady Vols were redefining what young women were capable of, trading in old definitions of femininity for new ones - in short, they were keeping score. And by the time they entered the NCAA Final Four tournament in Kansas City, Summitt found herself believing the impossible: despite all the distractions, the 1997-98 Lady Vols could go undefeated, and, in doing so, raise the roof off the sport of women's basketball."--Jacket
