Love, Zac: Small-Town Football and the Life and Death of an American Boy by Reid Forgrave

The True story of Zac Easter, a twenty four year old Iowa (young) man who took his life in December 2105. Zac was a young energetic football player. He suffered many concussions during his life while playing football. His life takes a turn in many ways, including alcohol and drug abuse as he learns he has CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy). Ultimately this lead to him take his own life.

A fact filled heart breaking story of how football lead to the demise of a young man. With medical experts, football (experts), family members statements, and the words from Zac's personal journals, texts and emails. Told with brutal honestly and compassion Mr Forgrave brings up (the) once unheard of CTE, and the affects on those who suffer from it and the impact on family as well.

I strongly suggest this book to; young adults, adults, football players, parents of football players, young football players and those considering getting into this rough and tough sport. Love, Zac: Small-Town Football and the Life and Death of an American Boy is a heart felt memorable read, that has me thinking of football in a new light. A must read.

You've told her again and again. She doesn't want to hear it. so we are going to have to hit the x on her reviews again and again. At least it's fairly obvious. We can actually do it before opening the topic.
