Sports have always been a powerful tool for personal growth, community building, and social change. From the ancient Olympic Games to modern-day international competitions, sports have inspired individuals to push themselves beyond their limits, overcome adversity, and unite people from all walks of life. But the true transformative power of sports lies beyond the scoreboard.

Beyond the Scoreboard is a groundbreaking book that explores the profound impact that sports can have on individuals and communities. Written by acclaimed sports journalist and author, Rick Horrow, Beyond the Scoreboard features stories of athletes, coaches, and organizations who have harnessed the power of sports to transform themselves and the world around them.

The Power of Sports in Personal Growth

For many individuals, sports are much more than just a hobby or a pastime. They are a means of personal growth and self-discovery. In Beyond the Scoreboard, readers will discover inspiring stories of athletes who have overcome immense challenges to become champions both on and off the field.

From Paralympic gold medalist Amy Purdy, who lost both of her legs at the age of 19 and went on to become a world-renowned snowboarder and motivational speaker, to former NFL player Chris Borland, who retired from professional football at the age of 24 due to concerns over head injuries and went on to become a leading advocate for player safety, Beyond the Scoreboard showcases the resilience and determination of athletes who have used sports as a tool for personal growth and transformation.

Sports as a Catalyst for Social Change

Sports have always been a powerful catalyst for social change. From Jesse Owens’ historic performance at the 1936 Olympics, to the U.S. women’s soccer team’s fight for equal pay, to Colin Kaepernick’s protest against police brutality and racial injustice, athletes have used their platforms to shed light on important social issues and drive meaningful change.

Beyond the Scoreboard features stories of organizations and individuals who are using sports to create positive social change in their communities. From the Harlem Lacrosse and Leadership program, which uses lacrosse as a tool to help at-risk youth succeed in school and in life, to the YASI (Youth and Amateur Sports Initiative) program in Los Angeles, which provides underserved youth with access to quality sports programs and facilities, Beyond the Scoreboard demonstrates how sports can be a force for good in the world.

The Business of Sports

Sports are big business. From professional leagues and teams to sports media and marketing, the sports industry generates billions of dollars in revenue every year. But the business of sports is about much more than just dollars and cents. It’s about the people, the passion, and the power of sports to connect us all.
