In Spite of the Odds: A True Inspirational Journey from Walk-on to Full Scholarship at Ole Miss


If you’re familiar with the story of “Rudy” Ruettiger, then you know that he accomplished his dream of playing on the Notre Dame football team despite being 5’6″ and 165 pounds. And in Richie Contartesi’s motivational book In Spite of the Odds, readers become acquainted with a story similar to Rudy’s; Contartesi earned a Division I college football scholarship to Ole Miss, even though he was 5’7″ and 150 pounds.

The book is a great testament to what people can do through hard work and perseverance. It is encouraging, inspirational, and very interesting. Contartesi, who is not only an athlete and author, but also a youth motivational speaker, shows that we do not always need to have the odds in our favor to achieve our goals and reach our dreams. I highly recommend reading In Spite of the Odds!

You can find the book here on Amazon.
