Local author releases new book for athletes

Atmore’s Lou Vickery released his new book, Winner’s Edge, recently.

The book, which Vickery wrote with Coach Sonny Smith, is a resource book designed to help youth athletes 10 and over to obtain a better grasp of the mental aspects of sports.

Vickery said in a release, that regardless of the sport, to be a high-level performer, an athlete must have the mental toughness, fortitude, acumen, strength, courage and resilience to stand up to the challenges athletics consistently tosses their way.

In the book, Vickery and Smith draw upon their many years of involvement in sports, at both the amateur and professional levels.
