A former NFL player with the San Francisco 49ers, Tyrone Smith now spends his time showing others how to score in life. His new book, Outside The Huddle – Steps to Developing a Game Plan for Life, recalls his own journey from an at-risk, inner city youth with school struggles and personal defeat to graduating from Baylor University with a B.A. in Sociology, and ultimately, playing in the NFL. The lessons he learned along the way have given birth to an explosive message that will infuse readers with creative solutions and fresh perspectives.  When you find your purpose in life and realize that operating in what you are gifted to do is weighty, do it well and you will certainly find progress. When I knew that my purpose in life was to make a difference in the lives of others, I didn't need anyone to validate the work that I was inspired to do and get up each day to forge ahead! Your desire should be to become a better person tomorrow than you are today!"
