Description: Growing up in hardscrabble Garfield, New Jersey, Wayne Chrebet was always too small (5' 10", 185 pounds) or too slow or too something to be taken seriously as a football player. And even after an impressive career in high school, he wasn't even a blip on the recruiting radar screens of the big-time college programs.

Instead of training for an NFL career at Penn State or Michigan, Wayne went to Hofstra University on Long Island without a scholarship. Mom and Dad paid the eighteen-thousand-dollar-a-year tuition, and Wayne held up his end of the deal by earning a degree while setting record after record on the football field. But even after tying an NCAA mark held by Jerry Rice, Wayne's name was not called during the 1995 NFL draft. Undaunted, Wayne dedicated himself to being ready if and when he got the chance to prove the skeptics wrong. A day after the draft, Wayne earned an invitation to the training camp of the perennial doormat New York Jets as a blocking dummy free agent.

Four remarkable years and hundreds of catches later, Wayne has been singled out as one of the key ingredients that turned the Jets from laughingstock to Super Bowl contender. His secret is simple. He plays as if every down and every distance to go were his last. Full of inspiration, motivation, and charm, "Every Down, Every Distance" is the perfect book for football fans looking for someone to admire and proof that sometimes the underdog comes out on top.
