In this compelling new book about life in the NFL, the league's most notorious offensive lineman shares the untold story of what life is like for the men who live and breathe professional football and the mental, physical, and chemical preparation it takes to play America's most popular and violent game on a weekly basis. From the start of training camp through the preseason, from the pregame rituals through the postgame rehabilitation, the toll paid by the athletes who play in the NFL has never been described in more stark, honest, and uncensored terms. Featuring candid interviews with NFL stars past and present—including Mark Schlereth, Orlando Brown, Kyle Turley, Bill Romanowski, Simeon Rice, Jeff Garcia, and Brian Dawkins—War in the Trenches pulls back the curtain to reveal a world most fans have never seen, one in which pain is a constant companion and where teammates and friends often find themselves at odds.
