Zach Ertz has been on fire lately. First he scored the game-winning touchdown in Super Bowl LII, then followed that with a record-breaking season in 2018. He was then able to watch his wife win the Women's World Cup this summer, and now is set to pick up where he left off in 2018 and play at an All-Pro level in 2019.
During his off time Ertz decided to put together a book about his accomplishments on the football field and what it takes to be successful. The book is set to hit stores next week.
"Zach Ertz didn’t start out as a great football player. In fact, his first love was basketball. But then a chance encounter with an NFL legend changed the course of his life forever. Join Zach as he works his way up from oversized middle-school lineman to the Super Bowl–-winning and All-Pro tight end he is today. Go behind the scenes and discover what the life of a professional athlete playing at the highest level looks like. Children ages 8-12 will learn, by Zach’s example, the value of hard work, dedication, and perseverance, traits that he developed with the help of his mom, coaches, and most important, Jesus Christ."
The book also has a foreword from one of Ertz's closest friends: quarterback Carson Wentz. It sounds like it'll be a great book for kids to read and show them how they can better themselves now to strive for the future they want to create for themselves. This might end up being a great Christmas present for the kid Eagles fan in your life.
