I always knew I was going to play professional football. I always thought I’d have a big family. But I never expected to be a widower by the time I was thirty.
Losing my wife nearly destroyed me. Now, all I have in my life are my friends and my football career. Focusing only on playing the game is how I survive.
And then I get hurt in my third start of the season, and suddenly, I might be facing the end of my love affair with football.
Now I’m stuck in this weird limbo, where I don’t know what the future holds. I’m almost ready to give up when I meet a woman who convinces me that life can still be beautiful and full. But I know the kind of pain love can bring. I know what it feels like when my heart shatters. Do I have the guts to risk it all again?
