âLeave it to Jim Trotter, who knew Junior Seau better than anyone in our business, to capture his competitive essence and personal demons equally well. I had so many questions about why Seauâs life ended the way it did. Jim answered them with depth and compassion in this thorough and important book.ââPeter King, editor in chief, The MMQB
Tiaina Baul âJuniorâ Seau is widely considered to be among the best linebackers in NFL history, a ten-time All-Pro, a twelve-time Pro Bowl selection, and a first-ballot entrant into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
But in 2012, just two years after retiring from football, Junior Seau committed suicide. Studies of his brain by the National Institutes of Health concluded that Seau suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a brain disease often caused by repeated hits to the head. Seauâs suicide spawned numerous investigations into the brains of deceased NFL players, and many were found to have CTE.
Drawing on exclusive access to Seauâs family as well as Seauâs never-before-seen diaries and letters, Jim Trotter paints a moving and revealing portrait of a larger-than-life sports star whose achievements on the field were rivaled by his demons off it.
âNo media member is better qualified to write this book than Trotter .Â .Â . itâs a highly informative, easy read.â âNick Canepa, San Diego Union-Tribune
