In 1990, H.G. Bissinger released a book called Friday Night Lights: A Town, A Team, and A Dream. That book followed the story of the 1988 Permian High School football team in Odessa, Texas. It was a national bestseller that was made into a movie and a television series by the same name.
Dr. Nathanial Hearne was one of the football coaches at Permian at that time. Coach Hearne was a key influence in the lives of the players on that team, and he has a unique perspective on the happenings at Permian. His experiences also have given him wisdom on how to be successful in life.
Dr. Hearne shares what happened at Permian in his own words in his new book: Friday Night Lights: Untold Stories from Behind the Lights. This is much more than just another sports book. Anyone who is responsible for leading others will benefit from the principles of excellence that Dr. Hearne presents through his real-life stories.
Parents, teachers, coaches, supervisors, managers, and presidents can all come away inspired to take account of the legacy they are leaving behind.
