Mecklenburg tackles book signing

Posted By on Mon, Apr 29, 2013 at 5:38 PM

Former Denver Broncos linebacker Karl Mecklenburg retired in 1994, but he's never far from the public eye — or fans' hearts — due to his charity work. Well, now it's his wordsmithing that's bringing him around: At 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 5, the sack artist will sign, and talk about, his new book at the Chapel Hills Mall.

"You have to make decisions quickly in football; making no decision is always wrong," Mecklenburg writes in one excerpt from Heart of a Student Athlete: All Pro Advice for Competitors and Their Families. "When I coached high school football at Kent Denver, we had seven National Merit Scholars on our team. ... Even though the guys were so bright, one of our biggest challenges was trying to coach them to be decisive. Paralyzation by analyzation was the problem."
