Jim Otto – 00

I recently had the great pleasure of meeting Jim Otto at a family dinner and after 3 hours of listening to his stories I just had to read his book. “Jim Otto: The Pain of Glory”  I was enthralled with this book. Jim Otto is a man to admire and emulate. He never gave up, held strong to determination and made his dreams come true. They came at a price but one Jim does not regret. He is a family man, a team leader and truly an inspiration for all. In his book you also get a great view of the Raiders as they started as a rag tag team in the AFL to how they became a force to be reckoned with. He has had a ton of surgeries but never complains, he always shows strength and dedication, he is a man to be admired and respected.

I highly recommend this book, especially if you have any interest in football history.
