Hill, and David Anderson conducted interviews with young men (ages 18-40) of differing life and faith
experiences, and differing ethnic backgrounds in six regions of the U.S. This new book, Coming of Age,

Season of Life: a football star, a boy, a journey to manhood

by Jeffrey Marx

season of lifeFrom

“More than a quarter-century after they first knew each other as a professional football star and a ball boy for the Baltimore Colts, Joe Ehrmann and Jeffrey Marx once again crossed paths. The outcome was a remarkable journey through the greatest football season of all.  It was really a season of life more than anything else.

Joe was now a white-haired minister who also coached high school football and ran a program called Building
Men for Others. He was changing lives by teaching boys how to be men of substance and impact by focusing
on relationships and a cause beyond themselves.

Jeffrey quickly realized there was much to learn from his old friend. But he never could have foreseen
the gift of his own transformative experience. He never could have imagined that Joe would ultimately
help him open doors to his own Dad.”
