Brady Poppinga discovered his passion for football at an early age. Determined to first play for Brigham Young University and then the NFL, Brady immersed himself in youth sports. Even as he gained strength, skills, and eventually became a BYU recruit, Brady faced a monumental challenge: his inability to control his emotions in the heat of competition.
With a win at all costs mentality, Brady details how he became known for an over aggressive style of playing that led to strained relationships, and questions about his character. But it was not until he served on a mission in South America that Brady finally understood the true spirit of competition. Brady shares how he learned to master his emotions, achieve excellence on the field, and help lead his team to championships. He encourages others to apply his lessons—not just to games—but life as well.
