The inspirational story of Pittsburgh Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu

Troy Polamalu was the guiding spirit behind a Pittsburgh Steelers team that won two Super Bowls and led the NFL in total defense five times during his 12-year career.

In fact, in Polamalu’s first nine seasons as the starting strong safety, the Steelers allowed the fewest yardage five times, a sixth allowed the fewest points, and a seventh won a Super Bowl.

Only two seasons were below “Polamalu Standards,” and both seasons followed championships and are aptly described as “walking hangovers.”

This biography, the first written on the Steelers’ Hall of Famer, has been over a decade in the making and includes interviews with hundreds of Polamalu’s family, friends, coaches, team officials, front office members and teammates.

They enthusiastically came forward with the stories behind the stories on what helped Douglas High, Southern Cal and the Steelers win so many games with one of the greatest defensive playmakers in the game’s history, and how all of those teams did it the right way because of Polamalu.

It’s Polamalu’s grace and character, his humility, class, dignity, even – and this was big for him – his meekness that make this biography a must read for children of all ages. It could even be considered a blueprint for living life the right way.

Troy Polamalu did all of that. Learn how in this book.

Let’s give back to one of the most amazing and gracious athletes of our lifetime!
