Sports and Faith 2
Sports and Faith Book: More Stories of the Devoted and the Devout includes stories of current professionals like Jeremy Lin and Josh McCown, and legends like Stan “the Man” Musial and Bob Cousy.  Spotlighted are teams such as Bob Ladouceur’s De La Salle squad portrayed in the motion picture “When the Game Stands Tall.”  The author spends time with benevolent Tom Monaghan and faith-based institutions like Notre Dame, Ave Maria University, and Belmont Abbey College. The author dives into a few Bible stories and he reveals some McCaskey history.  Humorous poems, which the author is famous for delivering, are included.  

Sports and Faith Book: More Stories of the Devoted and the Devout takes on some sad developments—the recent tragedy in Kabul where Dr. Jerry Umanos and John and Gary Gabel were killed in cold blood. Also examined is the Washington Illinois tornado and the people who remediated the suffering. Burke Masters (featured on cover), Matthew Lightner, and Grant Desme—three promising athletes who decided on a role of lifetime service are spotlighted. McCaskey recalls the stories of those who strove to make the cut on and off the field. 

Pillars of the NFL

Pillars of the NFL: Coaches Who Have Won Three or More Championships is an encyclopedic story of the NFL and it's greatest coaches, written at just a level of detail that makes it readable and enjoyable, but not overwhelming.  Dan can pick and chose the coaches he wants to read about or he can read the book cover-to-cover.  The 10 greatest coaches of the NFL are Halas, Lombardi, Noll, Belichick, Walsh, Gibbs, Chamberlin, Brown, Ewbank, and Lambeau.
