When Grant Feasel retired from the NFL, Cyndy Feasel watched the man she loved to become a different person and stood powerless as alcohol and painkillers became Grant's medications for the trauma he experienced on the football field. Helmet-to-helmet collisions and the resulting concussions opened the door to CTE and transformed Grant from a sunny and loving man into a dark shadow of his former self.
In this raw and emotional memoir, Cyndy describes in painful and excruciating detail what can happen to an NFL player and his family when the stadium lights go down. A tale of destruction wrought by a game millions love and a powerful warning for football moms everywhere, After the Cheering Stops is also the story of the hard-won hope found in God's presence when everything else falls apart.
