The handsome young Brad Winston is one of the most promising high school athletes ever to emerge from the small town of Marlboro, Oregon, located an hour north of Florence on the rugged, scenic coastline. Considered the #1 most sought-after collegiate football recruit, Brad finally selects the University of Oregon's scholarship offer. As he undertakes his Oregon university adventure, Winston connects with another prominent figure living in his hometown, the famous adventure fiction writer, Blake Slater. Over the course of his first year at Oregon, Slater becomes the young athlete's "dutch uncle" friend and confidant. He helps Winston through a bumpy course of events that threaten his future as an athlete and the post-graduate dream he has for his own life. The Marlboro Miracle is a sport's story that transcends the gridiron excitement and provides readers with a heart-warming, feel-good story about an extraordinary young man everybody would like to adopt as their own son.
