About the Book

Take Your Shot, Make Your Play! is for students, athletes, coaches, entrepreneurs, salespeople, businesspeople, and anyone looking for an edge to achieve their goals. John Saintignon, one of the NCAA’s most accomplished basketball players, shares how pursuing his passion has led him to success. Left for adoption at a church in Mexico as an infant, he was adopted by a loving and supportive family in Arizona that acknowledged and encouraged his skills and love of sports. The lessons from his life story will help you: • Turn failures into comeback opportunities. • Focus on the things you control. • Cultivate the confidence you need to succeed. Saintignon, who led the entire nation in scoring in 1985/86, averaging 31.2 points per game at the University of California, Santa Cruz, is proof that it doesn’t matter where you start in life—it’s all about where you are going. From the streets of a neighborhood where kids rarely went to college to professional basketball courts throughout the world, you’ll learn lessons to succeed as an athlete, in business, and in life in this inspiring memoir.
