A new book by super agent Bruce A. Tollner!


“As a quarterback, I have played on some championship teams—and I have experienced some painful losses. Regardless of the outcome of any one game, my dad has been there to cheer me on. Whether I throw a winning touchdown pass or an interception, I know my dad is there to say, ‘Good job, Son, I am proud of you!’ My parents have had a major influence on the way I live life, as well as the way I play football. Because of their influence, and that of my coaches and others, I am blessed to be able to live out a childhood dream to play professional football. ‘The C.H.I.L.D. Game Plan’ can help you to help your child live out their childhood dreams. Read this book, and put together a winning game plan for your child. — Ben Roethlisberger, Two-time Super Bowl Champion Quarterback, Pittsburgh Steelers.

“In 1933, my dad, Art Rooney, purchased an NFL team. Today, the Pittsburgh Steelers organization is not just a family-owned NFL franchise that has won six Super Bowls—we are a family! That is just one of the values given to me by my father that continues to have a positive impact on my life. Just as my dad passed on a wonderful set of values to me, I hope that the treasures found in ‘The C.H.I.L.D.
