Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Some guys are just coaches. Bob is one of those guys. He's like John Wooden, Joe Torre, or Bill Walsh. They can coach any sport at any level."
—John Madden, broadcaster and Hall of Fame coach
“Neil Hayes has given us a riveting chronicle of the greatest high school football program in history. Emotional, inspiring, dramatic, and action-packed.”
—Thomas Carter, director of When The Game Stands Tall
“Exceptional. A story about brotherhood and the endless fight to achieve greatness in all aspects of life.”
—Alexander Ludwig
"Coach Bob Ladouceur's ability to communicate, teach, relate is unparalleled. He strikes a nerve with me every time I hear him speak."
—Jon Gruden, Monday Night Football analyst and former coach of the Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers
"A timeless and universal story about character, hard work, and love.”
—Steve Bersch, President, Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions 
“Neil Hayes beautifully captures the essence of Bob Ladouceur and his style of coaching ... As a parent, I learned more from this than any other book, especially in the areas of listening and compassion.”
—Laura Dern
"I've never seen a better coached team at any level. I watch De La Salle play and I can't believe it's a high school football game. Bob is as fine a coach as the game has ever seen.”
—Bill Walsh, Hall of Famer and former coach of the San Francisco 49ers
"Winning was merely a byproduct of Bob Ladouceur's teachings and philosophy, and his team won more games in a row than any other team, in any sport...ever. Clearly Bob has something to teach us all."
—Michael Chiklis
“Human vulnerability gets equal time with athletic invincibility throughout Hayes’s book.”
San Francisco Chronicle

—Steve Mariucci, NFL network analyst and former coach of the Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers


Présentation de l'éditeur

Revised and updated edition of the book to accompany the major motion picture directed by Thomas Carter and starring Jim Caviezel, Alexander Ludwig, Laura Dern, and Clancy Brown.

This insider’s account of the greatest winning streak in sports history brings to life the tragedies, triumphs, and unforgettable characters that inspired the major motion picture. Neil Hayes takes readers behind the scenes at De La Salle High School, where coaching legend Bob Ladouceur led his football team to a historic 13-year run of consecutive wins. A coming-of-age saga as well as an exciting sports story, When the Game Stands Tall provides a deft portrait of the enigmatic and visionary coach who instills in his players a discipline, commitment, and dedication to doing one's best that endure well beyond high school. This latest revised edition takes readers onto the film set for an introduction to the movie-making process, and includes a full-color insert of scenes from the movie, an afterword updating storylines of many of the memorable characters, and details of Ladouceur's final year as head coach.
As the story opens, the 2002 team, guardians of The Streak, is shaping up to be the most vulnerable in years. How the coaches and the players pull together throughout a difficult and challenging season to ultimately triumph is the thread of the book, with alternating chapters providing historical background on the school, past teams, stand-out players, and the dedicated coaching staff.
Known and respected throughout the ranks of American football, the quiet and unassuming Ladouceur is among this country's all-time coaching greats, a man who has helped to define excellence in sports and mentorship. The book affords an inside look at the training techniques, off-season conditioning programs, scouting habits, and practice plans that produced such an outstanding team. It also introduces a cast of unforgettable characters such as Dan Shaughnessy of Salesian HS, "a fierce competitor who stormed up and down the sideline and swore more than a Catholic school coach should"; Brother Laurence, a much-loved teacher at De La Salle; Coach Eidson, a.k.a. "Cobra," and others. The weaving in of these characters illuminates the nature of the competition and says much about the spirit of De La Salle and the culture Lad has created.

A uniquely remarkable story of commitment, endurance, fellowship with a perfect strategy for excellence led by a modest genius and his inspired staff. We readers are fortunate to get the inside-scoop relayed by this excellent and experienced author who was actually "embedded" within the team during the streak.
This is much more than a compelling sports story of young men and their mentor being the best they can be for their teammates. It is a story of honesty, friendship, love and loyalty being triumphant! All leaders of men should learn this.
The formula for success evolved and perpetuated year after year, as players graduated and rookies replacing them gathering experience and contributing industriously in practice, fitness drills and hard fought games.. Their opponents were frequently larger and heavier but none were ever stronger or fitter pound-for-pound.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I loved this book 18 octobre 2014

I loved this book. While it is admittedly about football, that is not the message. The message of this book is that Couch Lad and the De La Salle coaches used football as a way of teaching boys how to be great men. Year after year.

The book is very detailed, well written, and engaging. Once I started, I could not put it down. I read it over a week, cover to cover.

We read this book for our "spiritual" book club. It was very well written and although it had a lot of football detail which kind of went over my head, I enjoyed reading about the young players and their coaches. The spiritual message is subtle but impactful, more of a "do the right thing" message.

I loved this book. I agree with the reviewer who said it was about using football to teach boys to be great men. If I'd read it a few years earlier I probably would have tried to persuade my son to go to DeLaSalle, despite the fact that I think football is too dangerous a sport.
