  • BIRMINGHAM, Ala. : Preston Brown was drafted by the New England Patriots, after playing four years of football at Vanderbilt University. He went on to play for the New York Jets, as well as the Cleveland Browns. To many, it might have seemed that Brown was destined for a charmed life.

    However, Brown has seen his fair share of hardships. He has endured the death of a spouse, after 30 years of marriage, as well as fought and survived cancer, at 40-years-old.

    In “A Champion Game Plan for Life,” Brown shares a daily devotional and plan for success, while navigating the vicissitudes of life.

    “When I played football, we had a game plan,” Brown said. “Having a plan would give our team the best chance to win the game. When you plan for success, you are better equipped to handle whatever situations arise.”

    Brown has also been a praise and worship leader for more than 30 years and has preached over 170 sermons. His book contains a lot of scripture and each daily devotional has a focus subject, like overcoming fear, seizing opportunities or prioritizing goals.

    “So many of our youth today are on the cusp of greatness or failure,” Brown said. “It’s almost as if they are one circumstance away from having the abundant life that God wants us to have. Giving them a plan helps act as a path to greatness, as well as a bridge over troubled waters.”
