Three-time Pro Bowl tight end Chad Lewis says that every good thing in his life is a direct result of his family and his faith.
Surround Yourself with Greatness takes readers around the world while looking through the eyes, mind, and heart of Chad Lewis — a once freckle-faced, four-eyed, skinny teenager who at an early age wrote in his journal, “My goal and quest is to surround myself with greatness . . . only greatness will penetrate the walls of my heart.”
Within these soul-searching, character-framing chapters, we meet extraordinary people — coaches, teammates, friends, and family — and learn what a profound influence we have on each other’s lives.
From the miraculous, near-death experience of his father to the life-changing events in Taiwan as a missionary to the brutal football training camps and his nine-year career in the NFL, Chad takes us on a path to our own self-discovery as he shares his secrets to happiness and what it means to surround yourself with greatness.
“We live in a world of relationships that are dynamic. We need each other. We need to choose, with conscious awareness, to open our eyes, heart, and mind to the great people who elevate life that are all around us.”

About the Author
Chad Lewis walked-on to the BYU football team and was a four- year starter as a tight end. While he played for LaVell Edwards, BYU finished in the top ten two times, with a rank of 10th in ’94 and 5th in’96. Following his career at BYU, Chad entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent, making the team with the Eagles. He spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles, the St. Louis Rams, and then back with the Eagles, where he became a starter. He was selected to the Pro Bowl three times and helped his team get to the Super Bowl once. Chad and his wife, Michelle, have seven children and live in Cedar Hills, Utah.

Chad Lewis is a stud! I loved this book. It was just so inspirational to me to read about the things Chad and his family went through, and the attitude he carried with him through his many experiences. This book is great for youth, and for all who read it!
My Dad LOVED this book!
