Terry Hodges has a problem.
As president of the Orlando Vipers, he had expected bigger and better things from his team by now-if not a Super Bowl win, at least multiple playoff berths. But when a crushing loss against Dallas knocks the Vipers out of the playoffs picture for the third season in a row, Terry reaches his breaking point.
Are the players the problem?
Should he just blow the whole thing up-fire everyone and start over from scratch?
Unsure what to do, Terry asks his good friend, Super Bowl–winning coach and Hall of Famer Tony Dungy, to come on board and help him identify what the Vipers are doing wrong, then lay out a plan for turning the fledgling franchise around.
After meeting with the coaching staff and observing the team throughout the offseason, Tony quickly realizes the problem: The Vipers lack "SOUL."
What follows is an engaging and entertaining fable that explores the four key principles Coach Dungy believes characterize every successful team, both on and off the field.
Along the way, readers are treated to an unforgettable cast of characters and a unique insider’s look at the inner workings of an NFL franchise as they come together to discover the soul of a team. Saber más
