My Story

Former Division I Quarterback, Football Coach

& Certified Leadership Trainer with The John Maxwell TEAM

Eric Smith grew up in the small town of Alma, Michigan where both of his parents worked in public education. Eric loved sports. He was a 4 sport varsity athlete in football, basketball, baseball and track. Hard work paid off. In 1984, he earned a scholarship to attend Bowling Green State University to play football as a Quarterback. He describes his college athletic career as being full of ups and downs. “My time playing athletics was typical of what most athletes experience. Full of challenges and adversity. Some highlights and very bright moments filled with a lot of difficult ones as well.” Eric claims that the difficult times were every bit as valuable as the good times. “While things didn’t always go my way, looking back, I don’t think I’d trade my experience for anything. The challenging times really helped shape me and prepare me for navigating the challenges that I’ve faced in life.”

Easy Read, Brilliant and Enlightening!

Great read for any athlete interested in bettering their game in athletics and in life.
Having raised a son that has been involved in multiple sports ranging from T Ball to Division I College Football. I have really studied and analyzed the different philosophies involved in making young people realize and reach their maximum potential as athletes, leaders and responsible individuals.
Coach Smith captures these and clearly presents these principles in such a simple and motivating fashion. I plan to purchase more copies to share with other parents.

Why we use

the Triangle?

The reason the triangle is the strongest of the polygonal shapes is because, when force is added to a triangle, that force is spread evenly throughout all three sides.

This is the same logic Eric Smith applies to The Winning Edge Way: An Athlete and Coach's Guide to Becoming a 3-Dimensional Competitor.


As complex and nuanced as team sports are, there are three main components at their core: the player, the team, the game - each reliant on the other. In this guide, Smith meticulously breaks down and examines each of these three components through the lens of his own personal experience as both athlete and coach.


One should devote oneself to a purpose not for the purpose but for that which can be learned and gained along the way, to then be passed along to the next generation. And when you devote yourself to a sport (or purpose), as Smith has, you learn a thing or two - or in this case, three!
