All he wished was that Sarah had been there to see it, to know him as he'd known himself streaking down the wide-open field, not some jock hero scoring the winning touchdown, but a grown man experiencing an improbable moment of grace."
Author: Tom Perrotta

Embarrassed, I thought at first about arguing with Coach Hartman over what I felt was a tremendous slight.

That was the turning point of my life, on and off the court."
