About the Book

The journey to the sporting world’s grandest stage – the Super Bowl – is often wrought with overwhelming obstacles, personal challenges, and a workload that would make most men cringe. No one understands this more than Marc Edwards, whose winding road from blue collar Norwood, Ohio to the NFL and ultimately the Super Bowl was littered with derailing pot holes. How Marc became a successful family man and an old-school battering ram of a Super Bowl champion should no longer be a mystery.

Odyssey: From Blue Collar, Ohio to Super Bowl Champion
chronicles Marc’s personal quest for something great and how a cast of family members and behind-the-scenes family friends helped to keep him on track. Freelance writer and former award-winning newspaper sports editor Aaron M. Smith takes the reader on an intriguing ride through the rigors and joys of transforming from a third-grader with a dream to a captain at legendary Notre Dame and eventually to the starting backfield for the world champion New England Patriots. Marc’s struggles and eventual triumph will serve as inspiration and offer proof that you most certainly can do anything you want if you simply put in the effort.
