About Jackson Carter
The only way my teachers and parents could get through to me was threatening to remove sports. I loved sports (and still do) and I would spend endless hours watching and playing whatever sport was in season. I always thought that a love of sports meant that I couldn't read or wouldn't be any good at it.
Luckily I had an amazing 8th-grade teacher who was able to see that the problem wasn't a love of reading, it was in the material that they were trying to get me to read. He gave me the book "A Season on the Mat" which followed Dan Gable, the Iowa Wrestling Coach for a season. I devoured the book and three days later was back for another.
Since this time, I've been able to branch out my reading tastes a little more, but the lesson always stayed with me. If we want our children to read, we have to give them something that they enjoy reading.
This is why I have made it my mission to equip young people with the kindling they need to spark the love of reading. For me this was mainly books about famous sportspeople, so that's what I focus on. My goal is to reach the young men and women who think that a love of sports isn't compatible with a love of reading.
