More About Junior Seau by Jim Trotter
 
 
 
Overview
A moving portrait of the life and legendary career of one of the NFL s most beloved players Tiaina Baul Junior Seau is widely considered one of the best linebackers ever to play the game.A ten-time All-Pro and twelve-time Pro Bowl selection, Seau was picked for the NFL s All-Decade Team in the 1990 s. His incredible career spanned two decades, during which time he played for the Chargers, Dolphins, and Patriots.A charismatic leader and competitor known for playing through injuries and leaving it all on the field, Seau started inalmost 250 regular season games and electrified fans with his dynamic play.In 2012, at the age of forty-three, Seau committed suicide with a gunshot wound to the chest. News of his death sent shockwaves through the NFL. Later, studies concluded that Seau had been suffering from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a type of brain damage. His tragic death opened the door to hundreds of inquiries about the trauma from NFL players and their families.Drawing on exclusive access to Seau s family and Seau s never-before-seen diaries and letters, veteran reporter Jim Trotter goes beyond the statistics to paint a moving portrait of a larger-than-life star whose towering achievements in the game came at a great cost."
