From Blue Collar, Ohio to Super Bowl Champion
The journey to the sporting world’s grandest stage – the Super Bowl – is often wrought with overwhelming obstacles, personal challenges, and a workload that would make most men cringe.
No one understands this more than Norwood’s own Marc Edwards, whose winding road from his home on Ashland Avenue to the NFL and ultimately the Super Bowl was littered with derailing pot holes. How Marc Edwards became a caring family man and an old-school battering ram of a Super Bowl champion should no longer be a mystery.
Award-winning writer Aaron M. Smith tells the remarkable story of Marc Edwards in his book, Odyssey: From Blue Collar, Ohio to Super Bowl Champion. It chronicles Marc’s phenomenal journey from growing up in Norwood, to playing for Lou Holtz at Notre Dame, and to holding the Lombardi Trophy high over his head on one incredible Sunday night in New Orleans.
I grew up a huge Notre Dame fan and one of my favorite players was Marc Edwards. He was the epitome of a Notre Dame football player. I came across this book about Marc, ordered a copy, and it was a great read. It explained a lot about who Marc was and brought back a ton of memories from watching him play in the mid-90s. I love biographies on football players and this one is another good one. I recommend this book for any ND fan or football fan for that matter.
