If you haven’t yet gotten a copy of That’s Why I’m Here – The Chris and Stefanie Spielman Story, you should visit Barnes and Noble or Amazon.com immediately. In this touching and riveting book, Chris Spielman tackles every aspect of his life with a near superhuman intensity and laser-like focus. From his meteoric rise through high school and The Ohio State University football programs, to being drafted and going pro, Chris’s commitment to excellence enabled him to attain nearly every goal he set for himself in football. But it was off the field that Chris came face-to-face with his most dangerous and deadly opponent.
His world came crashing to a screeching halt in 1998—the day Stefanie was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. Together, Chris and Stefanie tackled the ensuing 11-year fight against her cancer with the intensity and resolve of an entire offensive line.
