A pictorial tribute.
"Forever a Chief" is the only book dedicated to the life and career of Kansas City Chief Linebacker Derrick Thomas that I am aware of.
This book consists of quotes from Mr. Thomas and NFL players and coaches, some full page action photos,(there are a few photos of D.T. in uniform for his last game) and career achievements from both on and off the field.
"On the field accolades are great, but in order to reach your full potential, you have to overstep the boundaries of football and go out into the community and be an All-Pro there too." -Derrick Thomas.
A large part of his legacy is his involvement in the community and especially with the youth.
In an NFL career that was too short, the late Derrick Thomas achieved the single-game sack record, impacted the outcome of games with his K.C. Strip (sack and chop)technique, and put up fantastic sack totals at Alabama.
Derrick Thomas set up the Third and Long Foundation and some of the proceeds from the sale of this book go to that foundation.
It's difficult to fully cover the player and more importantly, the man that Derrick Thomas was. This book as a pictorial tribute is a very good one.
I loved this book!It talks about all the great stuff the community, andabout how great a football player was.Get this book!
