Away from the Ball by Alan Ross
Book DescriptionAWAY FROM THE BALL presents the stories of a different kind of NFL player. In it Alan Ross takes a look at the positive accomplishments generated by many of today's athletes, such as Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy, Atlanta Falcons running back Warrick Dunn, Seattle Seahawks lineman Grant Wistrom, New York Giants linebacker Michael Strahan, New Orleans Saints running backs Deuce McAllister and Reggie Bush, and former Dallas Cowboys cornerback, Everson Walls. AWAY FROM THE BALL is a timely book that tells a part of the NFL story that is frequently overshadowed by negative news events and overlooked by the sports media. An inspirational look at the positive influence many NFL players have in their communities, AWAY FROM THE BALL will be an encouragement to football fans who love the game and want to look up to the men who play it.

Books By Author Alan Ross
Bandit on the Billiard Table, Paperback (June 2013)
An account of a summer journey in the early 1950s. It presents the author's descriptions of the landscape and local customs and more (including billiards, 'one of the great Sardinian occupations') that are interspersed with tales of a cast of characters who might have come out of Boccaccio, adding up to a memorable evocation.
West Indies at Lords, Paperback (July 2012)
Every so often a Test match offers such high drama as to transcend the series of which it was part. Such a battle was the second Test between England and West Indies at Lord's in June 1963. Wisden called it one of the most dramatic played in England. The author's eyewitness account amply evokes its excitement.
