“One day you will be the proudest mom in the whole world. . . .”
When San Diego Chargers running back and NFL MVP LaDainian Tomlinson (“LT”) was a senior in high school, he wrote his mom a letter making three promises: he would go to college, he would play professional football, and he would make her the proudest mother in the world.
In LT & Me, Loreane Tomlinson shares the amazing story of how all of her son’s seemingly impossible dreams came true.
This heartfelt memoir traces LT’s journey from small-town boy who carried a football everywhere he went to NFL superstar, and the behind-the-scenes story of the woman he calls his inspiration who helped make it all happen. How did this struggling single mom, who often worked two or more jobs at once, manage to scrape together the money for LT to attend his first football camp? Why did she reach out to make peace with her children’s father even as he battled the addictions that had once torn their home apart? What did she do to cultivate the talents—and shape the character—of the young man who has been described as representing “all that is good in sports today”?
This inspiring book is for every parent who has ever wondered how to bring out the champion in their kids, and every kid who dreams of being something more.
