About the book:
Breakout NFL star Deshaun Watson, quarterback for the Houston Texans, shows readers the lessons that have driven him to become a leader and to put others first.
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is one of the most promising young players in the NFL, but he believes that true success lies in leading his team from a perspective of service. In this inspiring, practical book, Deshaun illustrates how the seven qualities of a servant leader can lead to a more successful life.
Deshaun Watson was only eleven when his family qualified for a Habitat for Humanity house, which was furnished by Atlanta Falcons running back Warrick Dunn through Dunn’s charity, Homes for the Holidays. But that early gift left a lasting impression, teaching Deshaun that generosity and service to others are important parts of true success.
Now a star in his own right, and the most promising young player in the NFL, Deshaun reveals the lessons that have guided him throughout his life. From Deshaun’s early days in Gainesville, Georgia, where he supported his mother through cancer, to his years at Clemson University—where he graduated in three years while being nominated for the Heisman twice—to his first few seasons in the NFL, Deshaun has distinguished himself as a leader by putting others first. In Pass It On, Deshaun opens up about the seven core values that have guided him on his own journey.

Interweaving stories from his life with practical advice that every reader can apply, Deshaun demonstrates how true strength lies in putting others first.
