When San Diego Chargers running back and NFL MVP LaDainian Tomlinson (“LT”) was a senior in high school, he wrote his mom a letter making three promises: He was going to go to college, he was going to play professional football, and he was going to make her the proudest mother in the world. In LT & Me, Loreane Tomlinson tells the behind-the-scenes story of how all of these once seemingly impossible dreams came true. Her fascinating and poignant tales of raising LT through her days as a struggling single mom, and watching him doggedly overcome obstacles in his quest for greatness, will inspire you to bring out the champion in your kids—and in yourself. Contains a foreword by LaDainian Tomlinson and a color photo insert.
