  On Thursday, July 7th national champion Auburn head football coach Gene Chizik came to my hometown of Kennesaw, GA to sign copies of his new book All In at Lifeway Christian Store.  I was unable to attend personally because of job responsibilities.  However, I asked my wonderful wife Sonya if she would purchase the book and get Coach Chizik to autograph it.  […]
