Local Author Uses Football Training to Plan Life Goals


Local author and football coach DJ Davis discusses the use of football strategies and techniques to plan life goals.

 DJ Davis has dedicated his life to football. Football has inspired him so much that he has adapted playbook strategies to plan personal goals. In his book, Davis discusses that life is a lot like running plays in football.  Davis says that he never planned to write a book. The book was jotted down over the course of a spring break holiday.

"I just started tinkering on the computer and a week later I had about 70 percent of something that seems like it could have been a book. After about two months, I went ahead and decided to put it together," Davis says.

Davis is a West Monroe native and founder of the Rise N Shine Jr. Training Camp. He currently serves as the head football coach at Riser Middle School. Visit his website to find out more information on his book and non-profit organization.
