Joe Ehrmann is no wimp. A first-round NFL draft pick, he completed eight successful seasons on the Baltimore Colts’ defensive line and two more with the Detroit Lions. And at 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds, he could knock your head off if you were unlucky enough to get in his way. In fact, he once told The New York Times he wanted to do just that to Joe Namath.
But that was a long time ago. Now Ehrmann will tell you that real strength isn’t about size, or taking down your opponent, or racking up wins. No, the man Parade magazine dubbed “The Most Important Coach in America” believes athletes and their mentors face a much tougher challenge than just scoring points: They have to look inside themselves and forge a meaningful moral purpose, and then apply that greater understanding to helping others thrive.
