About the Author

Jake Byrne has battled with type 1 diabetes since a young teen and has since been proactive combating the disease and mentoring diabetic youth. He played football for the University of Wisconsin as a tight end and went on to compete in the NFL. Originally with the New Orleans Saints in 2012, Jake has also been a Houston Texan, Kansas City Chief, and San Diego Charger.


"As a football fan, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Jake's behind-the-scenes look at life in the NFL. But even better, I think First and Goal: What Football Taught Me about Never Giving Up will be a helpful devotional for all teens, showing them how to integrate faith and life, and inspiring them to persevere through all of life's challenges."
-Josh Kelley, pastor and author of Radically Normal
"As the mother of a high school receiver, I'm thrilled to have found this perfect blend of faith and football targeted to reach the heart of my son. The readings are short enough to keep his attention while still giving him plenty to think about as he heads out the door to practice. Jake Byrne's honesty about his personal struggles balancing life, football, and diabetes give hope to others navigating the rough waters of life. While we can all learn from the lessons Jake shares, First and Goal is the perfect inspiration for teenaged boys like mine."
-Candee Fick
"The book is so inspirational to my son who has type 1 diabetes, like Jake. Even for someone without type 1 diabetes, the book is great and the stories are so enjoyable."
-Therese Balistrieri
