Publisher Description

Chuck Pagano, head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, has become one of the most inspiring, intriguing personalities in the game of football. Only three games into his rookie season in 2012, Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia, sidelined by the side effects chemotherapy and months of recovery.

Undeterred, Pagano didn’t let the confines of his hospital bed keep him from coaching: texts, calls, and emails kept him in constant contact with players, staff, and assistants. Motivated to be just as strong and determined as their ailing coach the team started winning game after game, compiling an impressive 11-5 record.

The players weren’t the only ones touched by Pagano’s hope and strength of character. Inspired by the tenacity and toughness of their beloved coach, a newcomer to town, thousands of fans united to form Chuckstrong, a movement that soon raised millions to help beat cancer. Pagano, fueled by his faith, his family, and his love of football, returned to lead the Colts to another winning season and the divisional playoffs in 2013.

With Pagano’s practical lessons on living, loving, and leading, Sidelined, which includes an 8-page color photo section, inspires us all to stay in the game and never accept defeat.

Inspiring

Excellent, inspiring read about the challenges both on the field and off faced by this positive individual. There was more chronicling of the football games and the Colts 2012 season than I would have liked. The football results, although they inspired Chuck in his battle with leukemia, were irrelevant to the story - Chuck's successful victory over his disease.

It is Chuck's character and his support network that make this story inspiring. Read it to learn the importance a positive attitude and the support of family and friends can make when facing a life or death crisis. Learn about Chuck's humbleness as he discounts his celebrity and reminds us that our vocations are what we do - not who we are.

Go inside the huddle with Chuck as he shares his game plan for tackling his disease and triumphantly reaches the end zone. May he have many, many more seasons ahead of him!
