Author Marty Cone shares the story of how he followed his dream in the new book Bury My Heart in Boulder: Memoirs of a Big-8 Conference Football Walk-On Linebacker (Xulon Press, $16.99/$8.99 e-book). He hopes to offer strength and encouragement to others who are pursuing their goals.
In the book, Cone recounts how his dreams of being a pro football player were attacked after high school, when he was told he wasn’t big enough to make it. He didn’t give up, though. He had a plan.
“This book is for anyone who feels they are just not done yet; for anyone who has set a goal and failed. With God’s help, all things are possible. Oh, and please be ready to laugh,” said Cone.
