“This book will touch you with the story of one man whose desire to succeed and courage in overcoming adversity made him a winner both on and off the field. He beat cancer twice and endured an ongoing battle with heart disease while leading the Findlay Oilers to four national championships.”
Dick Vitale

Hall of Fame Coach Dick Strahm’s compelling story of success and survival

This is a book for anyone who has ever played or coached the game of football, which has ever competed between any set of lines, but, more importantly, for everyone who has ever battled life’s larger foes, those monumentally more important than crossing a goal line, knocking down a buzzer-beating jump shot, or hitting a ball out of the park.

Dick Strahm, a four-time NAIA national championship coach, is a member of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame and has impacted small-college football perhaps as much as anyone who’s ever strode the sidelines. A four-time recipient of NAIA’ stop coaching honor, National Coach of the Year, Strahm compiled a remarkable .736 winning percentage at The University of Findlay during his 24-year tenure.

Along the way to coaching greatness, Strahm’s most memorable victories have come against opponents with names like heart disease, cancer, and stroke. His 40-plusyearcoaching career is a remarkable story of perseverance, resiliency, and an indomitable will, the story of a man who has seen every setback as a golden opportunity to mount a fourth-quarter rally. Dick Strahm, both on the field and off, has been both a winner and, more importantly, a survivor.

His love affair with football started during an era dominated by our nation’s greatest war and continued throughout the decades which followed. From Lakota, Bryan, and Warren Western Reserve high schools to the University of Toledo to Kansas State University to The University of Findlay, Dick Strahm has been an inspiration to all whom he has touched.
