Publisher's Summary

Jeremy Williams captured the nation’s imagination by coaching his high school football team to unprecedented heights while combating ALS and caring for a son with spina bifida. This is his family’s inspiring story.
America first met Jeremy and Jennifer Williams when Extreme Makeover: Home Edition rebuilt their Depression-era farmhouse into a beautiful, handicapped-accessible haven. Friends, family, and neighbors from their west Georgia community - and all over the state - came together to support the ailing high school coach who had won their respect and their hearts. It made for compelling television but only told a little slice of the story.
Tenacious gives you the rest - a tender love story, a thrilling sports story, and an unforgettable testimony to the power of faith and grit in the face of almost overwhelming adversity. In Tenacious you’ll meet:


The distraught parents learning their son would be born with spina bifida
The young father facing his own devastating diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) with matter-of-fact courage
The coach who guided his underdog team to a 10-0 Cinderella season - while struggling to walk, talk, and even breathe
Packed full of faith, hope, love, and miracles, Tenacious is a story you don’t want to miss.
