There comes a single moment in many people’s lives that defines who they have been and who they are destined to become. For some people it comes at the most unexpected of times. For our next guest, Jerry Glover it came at a moment that was one of the lowest in his life. His book “Play to Win” uses a collection of stories based on his time as a force in Alabama football as a vehicle for sharing his views on spirituality and his relationship with God. 

Jerry Glover, author of Play to Win: Keys to Victory in the Game of Life
A former head student manager for football at the University of Alabama under Paul "Bear" Bryant, Jerry Glover turned his life over to Jesus Christ twenty years ago.  Glover lives in Alabama with his wite, Karen. He has three sons.

Jerry received his verifiable “know so” confirmation and assurance of the beginning of his salvation on June 2nd 1987.  This beginning of new life came to Jerry in the very nick of time, right before the trip off that proverbial cliff of destruction.

Jerry has now walked through a twenty one year period of miraculous transformation and has now received his calling.  This calling is to the share those incredible times and experiences with the hope that many others will choose to follow this awesome experience to the assurance of their salvation.

“Play to Win” utilizes the concept that winning in life is similar to winning in football. Glover recounts stories from his 65 years of life as a roadmap both to success in life and salvation with God. Glover begins “Play to Win” with the story of how he came to Jesus. From there he tells many stories about his time both as a football coach for various Alabama high school football teams and his time working for the legendary Coach Bear Bryant. “Play to Win” is written for anyone who is lost and in need of guidance, or for those who just need a gentle reminder of what is most important in life.

It’s not important that people necessarily hear about the things that occurred to Jerry Glover per se; it is important, however, that I bring to light the principles that were involved. Many of these principles are true in every circumstance and every situation. They are absolutely capable of guiding anyone into the greatest victory of all: winning in the big game of life. These principles apply universally. They apply equally powerfully in Florida, Illinois, or even China. The knowledge of these can literally mean the difference between life and death. The stories and events within the book primarily occur in Alabama but similar events are duplicated worldwide.

I attempt here to give an accurate play-by-play account of my sudden change from being a very disturbed and lost sinner to being a transformed man, filled with a new winning life, twenty years in the making. The events described along this journey each play a role in determining the final outcome of this most vital of all contests. The winning of the big game is really the greatest achievement of all.

Jerry Glover was born in Portsmouth, Virginia. He attended the revered University of Alabama and managed the “Crimson Tide” under the now-legendary Coach Paul William “Bear” Bryant. After graduating, Glover went on to coach football and become a successful business owner. Glover now lives in McCalla, Alabama with his wife of 34 years, Karen. Jerry has lived a colorful life with plenty of highs and lows.
