“Been around this amazing game for awhile, and few have ever taken us inside the true emotion, process, preparation and understanding of what it takes to win on the biggest stage. Cassie does this so uniquely, you will find yourself applying to your own life the creative ways this special group was able to succeed both as an underdog in THE championship moment and as a difference maker in life.”

Finished It shows us there is more to winning a national championship than meets the eye the day that trophy is hoisted. Discovering the details of raw emotion and effort that goes into winning a national championship is nothing short of motivational. You can see the Alabama Softball program has developed a formula for not only winning games, but the effort it takes to develop a healthy, inspiring lockerroom from day one of a season. Any athlete, any person would be able to relate to the dedication, creativity, passion and belief in each other this team had from the get-go of their magical season.

Must Read

Every player, parent and coach should read this book. There’s a reason why she and her team were successful and a reason why Alabama softball has a cult following. If you think you do things well and are a selfless individual, you’ll figure out you have some work to do. This may be the best book I’ve every read, and it will get read again. I am a softball coach though, if you’re a coach of any sport it is still more than worth it. Phenomenal.

This book should is a must-read for every softball coach, parent and player. AND, it’s a should-read for everyone else who does not fit into that category. The book extends beyond the sport of softball and beyond the Crimson Tide. It’s about teamwork.

The comfortable cadence of each chapter begins with background on the team, and ends with Cassie gradually re-living the day when Alabama won the national championship. It’s hard to put down!

One of the main points that sticks out is the importance of each role on a team. Cassie connects many roles to the success of her team. She explains how the championship could not have been won without the fans, the video producer, trainers, coaches, and each athlete, including the Wolfpack sitting on the bench. Every person matters and can find a way to make a difference. This idea relates on and off the field.

I credit Cassie with instilling a passion for the game in my daughter, who was fortunate to have taken lessons with Cassie throughout her stay in Iowa. Cassie is an incredible person, a talented writer, and a heck of a softball player! . more

It’s the greatest accomplishment a football team can achieve. This season, the field features several stacked teams hoping to steamroll the competition and avoid any upsets.

While several frontrunners have the best chances of winning the next Super Bowl, more than half of the NFL's teams have title aspirations.
