What does it take to make it to professional level sports? And how do you ensure a player’s health, as well as mental and financial wellbeing, throughout their career and into retirement? How do you know a good agent from a bad one? Who can you trust to be in your inner circle?
These are the questions author Jo Ann Pugh tackles in The 50-Yard Line Mom: One Mom’s Journey Through The NFL And Beyond. From her own experience as the mother of NFL veteran Jordan Pugh, Jo Ann gained invaluable insight into the makings of an athletic career with the wealthiest sports league in history.

While Jo Ann’s story centers on her son Jordan’s NFL experience, her wisdom and advocacy span all sports. If your son or daughter aspires to play professional sports, you need to read this book.
