How Far Can Two Men Go On Their Roads To Greatness?

There are a million reasons why Brooks Bennett and Eric Olson should never have met. There was one reason why they did, and their lives were forever changed. This is the story of two athletes, written in their fictional voices, dealing with massive challenges to reach their greatest potentials, while also overcoming adversity, pain, and emotion to make it all happen. Destiny brought them together. A Southern California "surfer dude" baseball player and an overachieving hockey player from Roseau, Minnesota. Both aiming for greatness but unaware of the pitfalls ahead of them, learning to face challenges and overcoming downfalls along the way.
