Overview

Following a stellar career as an NFL linebacker, O. J. Brigance joined the Baltimore Ravens' front office.

As a player, he'd battled hundreds of setbacks, but none prepared him for this.

With faith and determination in his heart and his wife, Chanda, praying by his side, O.J. fought back against the debilitating disease, even as ALS robbed him of the ability to walk and speak. He kept working, smiling, and touching players' lives all the way to the Ravens' victory at Super Bowl XLVII in 2013--more than five years after his diagnosis.

Now, O.J. shares his incredible story, offering lessons in resilience and reflecting on the team that inspired him in turn. With insights into the Ravens' dynamics from the best seat in the house, O.J. highlights their perseverance, confidence, and leadership, the best that sports can bring out in people.
