Product Description

The Upset: Life (Sports), Death...and the Legacy We Leave in the Middle

October 20, 2018, was just another normal Saturday in college football - or so it seemed. Amid all the matchups discussed on ESPN that day, it was a special video featuring the harrowing story of Tyler Trent - along with his bold, yet accurate, prediction that Purdue would upset Ohio State - "that captured the hearts of millions." The Upset chronicles so much more than just an inspiring battle against the seemingly impossible opponent of osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. A brilliant young statistician and sportswriter, Tyler faced his own mortality, and his life reflects the remarkable eternal upset only experienced in faith, family, and authentic community.
