By the time he retired from the NFL in 1994, Green had plenty of options to choose from where his future was concerned. He contributed his talents to several shows, including ‘Fox NFL Sunday’, ‘Find My Family’, and ‘A Current Affair’.
The first few years of the author’s life were spent writing fiction for adults. But it wasn’t until he turned his attention towards fiction for young readers that his publishing star exploded. To promote his work, Green started visiting schools and speaking to children.
He quickly found that he had a passion for the hundreds of thousands of kids that kept gathering to hear his message. Green hasn’t stopped encouraging children to pursue their dreams. He keeps emphasizing the fact that, as a child, he dreamed of becoming an NFL player. However, his desire to write novels was just as strong.
And as an adult, he eventually achieved both dreams. Green wants young people to prioritize kindness and personal relationships rather than money and fame. He wants students to realize that there is more to life than the glamour that Hollywood promotes.
A husband and father of five children, Green is quite active in the legal field. He spent several years with a firm (Barclay Damon LLP) that expanded its reach within the fields of energy and intellectual property because of Green’s efforts.
The author eventually joined forces with Scott Brenneck (Former Assistant District Attorney) to form a criminal defense firm.
Tim Green attracts a lot of respect because of his versatility. The fact that he went to law school while playing in the NFL shocks most people. Green imputes the decision to his mother, a teacher, who was always emphasizing the importance of education.
As a young athlete, Green saw several older players whose lives crumbled once their NFL careers ended. Green knew that his own career would end one day, and he studied Law because he wanted a second career upon which he could fall back once he retired.
Green admits that his schedule was quite hectic. It took him six years (rather than three) to graduate because he could only study in the spring semester. He would take his classes in the morning, train in the afternoon, and then care for his wife and children at night.
Squeezing writing into that equation wasn’t easy but he succeeded. Green wrote several suspense novels before a Harper Collins creative director reached out to him. After realizing that he was a former NFL player, she asked Green to use his experiences in the NFL to write fiction for children. This conversation compelled the author to write “Football Genius” which became a bestseller.
Tim Green Awards
Green won the Buckeye Children’s Book award for “Perfect Season”. He has been nominated for Mark Twain Readers, Golden Archer, Isinglass Teen Read, Iowa Teen, and Truman Readers Awards, to mention but a few.
Best Tim Green Books
Besides reading and writing, Green enjoys boating, hunting, and fishing, with some of his best novels including:
Football Genius: Troy White is determined to lead the Falcons to Championship glory. Troy is only 12 but that doesn’t make him any less confident in his abilities. The boy can predict football plays. It is the sort of gift that would make the Falcons invincible. But that is only if their mean coach will listen.
Troy thinks he has a chance of infiltrating the team now that his mother has landed a job working for them. To succeed, he must convince Seth Halloway, a linebacker, that his special gift is real.
Unstoppable: Harrison thought his dream of playing in the NFL was foolish. As a foster kid living in a horrible home, he knew it was the longest of shots. But then the unexpected happened. Not only was Harrison adopted by a loving family but his new father was a football coach.
Before he could fully comprehend his luck, Harrison was suddenly thrust into the limelight. With his father’s help and his big build, Harrison had become his junior high school team’s star running back.
He never expected his hopes to crush so quickly. But now that an injury has sidelined him, Harrison doesn’t know whether he has the strength to keep going.
