How does a young man from Thomasville, Georgia grow up to be a Heisman Trophy winning quarterback from Florida State University and then play in the National Basketball Association for over ten years, the only athlete ever to accomplish this remarkable feat, all the while embracing a life of love and dedication to his fellow man? Charlie Ward is a man of faith. In his athletic ability and teammate relationship. In his decision making with regards to his career. In his church and personal ministry. In his ability to communicate and coach young people. In his ability to write, message, and elicit ideas of personal growth. In matters of family and personal health. In leadership. In love.
