About the Book
In his first ever book, The IF in Life: How to Get Off Life’s Sidelines and Become Your Best Self, NFL running back and Dancing with the Stars champion Rashad Jennings shares his inspiring story and experiences, imparts practical advice, and encourages readers to follow their dreams.
As a kid, Rashad Jennings dreamed of one day playing in the NFL, but the odds were stacked against him—he was an overweight kid with glasses, asthma, and a 0.6 GPA. Today, Rashad is a record-setting running back who has played with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Oakland Raiders, and the New York Giants.
In The IF in Life, Rashad writes about the decisions that shaped his life. From overcoming injuries and setbacks to reaching goals and everything in between, Rashad’s transparency about his journey will encourage readers to hold on to faith in the midst of uncertainty and win big in life.
Perfect for football fans of all ages, this book also features photos from Rashad’s childhood, college years, and professional career.

If you love a great true story, and you need inspiration for your life, then The IF in Life is just the book for you!'--Miles McPherson--Founder and Senior Pastor, The Rock Church, San Diego; Former NFL Defensive Back; Motivational Speaker
'The IF in Lifeand hellip; The title alone speaks volumes. As a fellow NY Giant, I've come to know Rashad as a genuine mentor. He taught me the difference between being an NFL player and a pro-athlete. His deeply missed presence in the locker room is a great testament to the incredible obstacles he has tackled to get to where he is today. This book chronicles that story and gives you great principles for handling the IFs of life along the way! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!'--Odell Beckham, Jr.--NFL All-Pro Wide Receiver for the NY Giants
'In all my seasons on Dancing with the Stars, I've never had a partner so committed to hard work and excellence. I know and love so much about Rashad, but this book reveals things that I could never imagine having to go through. More people need to read this and be affected by his philosophy in life. You'll fall in love with Rashad's story. And you'll be inspired to become your best self! The IF in Life would be a great movie someday!'--Emma Slater--Dancer/Choreographer for Dancing with the Stars, Season 24 Champion
'Although we all come from different backgrounds and have different stories, humanity has this in common: we only get one shot at this life. Rashad has written a book that will help anybody who wants to get out of 'what could have been' and start making the most of the opportunities we have. I know The IF in Life will be a blessing to many!'--Carl Lentz--Hillsong NYC Pastor
