Tenacious - How God Used a Terminal Diagnosis to Turn a Family and a Football Team into Champions

Jeremy Williams

Jeremy Williams captured the nation’s imagination by coaching his high school football team to unprecedented heights while combating ALS and caring for a son with spina bifida. This is his family’s inspiring story. America first met Jeremy and Jennifer Williams when Extreme Makeover: Home Edition rebuilt their Depression-era farmhouse into a beautiful, handicapped-accessible haven. Friends, family, and neighbors from their west Georgia community-and all over the state-came together to support the ailing high school coach who had won their respect and their hearts. It made for compelling television but only told a little slice of the story. Tenacious gives you the rest-a tender love story, a thrilling sports story, and an unforgettable testimony to the power of faith and grit in the face of almost overwhelming adversity. In Tenacious you’ll meet: The distraught parents learning their son would be born with spina bifida. The young father facing his own devastating diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) with matter-of-fact courage. The coach who guided his underdog team to a 10–0 Cinderella season-while struggling to walk, talk, and even breathe. Packed full of faith, hope, love, and miracles, Tenacious is a story you don’t want to miss.
