Synopsis : Like most athletes encountering fame, fortune and females, including Oscar winning actress, Halle Berry, in abundance for the first time, Reggie ate it up, yet it was not enough. There was a void in his life which he discovered could not be filled through his high living.
The story of Reggie Rucker takes the reader on a journey through the Washington D.C. most tourists didn't see in the late 1950's. Within the shadow of the White House, monuments and the seat of legislative power, Reggie and his mother, Nancy, walked down C Street, looking for food and a place to sleep at night. From these humble beginnings, Rucker was inspired to move beyond life as a homeless child in the ghettos of our nation's capitol to become an NFL star wide receiver. Reggie Rucker, #33, was an acclaimed member of one of the most exciting professional football teams of the 1980's, the Cleveland Browns' Kardiac Kids. He was known for his good hands and sure catching abilities.
This inspirational story offers fun and information about life as a professional football player, from training camp as a rookie to becoming a star receiver and the perks that came with stardom. In addition, it explains how a professional athlete can be put into many situations that others don't face, and how, without the guidance of his faith, Reggie was not able to overcome many of the temptations which came his way.
