Proven Player: The Instruction Manual to Building Character in Sports and Life (Paperback)
Proven Player serves as an instructional manual to be used by coaches and athletes to strengthen the development of their character as it pertains to sports and life. In this life there seems to always be a need to prove one's self and with that thought a person needs to know what it takes to demonstrate the accurate character traits that makes one a "Proven Player." If a person is to know how to handle certain situations on the plateau of their given sport or within this life, he or she will need a plan to insure that the situations on the playing field and in life are responded to in a proper manner that brings a greater passion for life and those around them that are affected by their responses.
Proven Player is that plan.
John Powell originally created "Proven Player" to encourage and instruct athletes in the area of Character. He believed that there is so much that can be learned about one's character from the sports arena. He was able to see success when he took the University of Mississippi football team through this study during the 2014 season while serving them as the F.C.A. Football Chaplain. John served with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes for 15 years until he recently left to become the Campus Pastor at Fellowship Bible Church South Campus in Jackson Tennessee. He is married to Holly and they have three children Joanna, Ezra, and Jotham.
