Full Description

The inspiring story of Nate Ebner's bond with his unconventional father and its remarkable consequences
Nate Ebner and his father were inseparable. From an early age, they worked side-by-side in the family junkyard and worked out side-by-side in their grungy homemade gym. Nate followed his father's passion for rugby and started playing for the same club as his father when he was only thirteen years old.

But eventually, he had to face the fact that there was no way to make a living as a professional rugby player in this country. So Nate gave his dad the news that he planned to quit rugby and go out for the football team at Ohio State University, with an eye toward making the NFL. As a goal for someone who hadn't even played high school football, this was completely ridiculous. Without blinking, his father told him that if he gave up what he had built in rugby, he had to see it through. It was the last conversation they ever had--the next day, his father was brutally murdered at work by a would-be robber.

Three Super Bowl rings later, Nate's legacy football is secure. But he got an unexpected chance to honor his father's memory when the Olympics admitted rugby as a sport for the 2016 Games. Against long odds, he made the team and competed in Rio in the sport he and his father loved above all others. An astonishing story of what a father will do for a son and what a son will do for a father, Finish Strong is a powerful reminder that the lessons parents embody for their children continue to bear fruit long after they are gone.
