In this compelling memoir, Jerad Romo reflects on a life shaped by hard work, determination, and unexpected twists. From his early days mowing lawns and toiling in carrot fields, to the pinnacle of high school sports triumphs, the journey took a sharp turn when coveted scholarships eluded the athlete. Undeterred, he navigated the challenges of college sports, facing setbacks and ultimately finding success at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, Texas. The narrative weaves through personal and professional milestones, from a chance encounter with Carl Sewell Jr. to a lasting bond with football legend Roger Staubach. Now a devoted family man with sixteen years at Sewell Automotive Companies, he imparts the invaluable lessons of faith, generosity, and perseverance. Through highs and lows, Rise Above is a testament to the resilience that fuels the pursuit of greatness—a journey that will resonate with readers, inspiring them to embrace life’s lessons with unwavering determination.
