Philadelphia sports legend, Brian Westbrook can now add author to his resume. Westbrook was drafted by the Eagles in 2002. He spent eight seasons with the team, including two Pro Bowl selections.
The Eagles star and former Philadelphia sports anchor Lesley Van Arsdall co-authored a new children’s book, “The Mouse Who Played Football.” The book is about a mouse who overcomes obstacles to play football. It is geared toward children ages 4-8. Westbrook said he was inspired to write the book because he wanted to inspire kids to chase their dreams. “The story is about overcoming your fears. Never allowing someone else to tell you what you can and cannot do, but also believing in yourself,” said Westbrook.
This book is based on Westbrook’s own experiences, and it is a great way to teach kids the importance of never giving up on their dreams.
