Texas A&M football legend Mike Evans’ latest endeavor is an inspiration for the next generation
We’d like to interrupt your daily programming to highlight some positive news that anyone can cheer for, whether during the offseason or not.
Super Bowl champion, 4-time Pro Bowler, and of course Texas A&M legend Mike Evans recently unveiled his new children’s book titled, “The Middle School Rules of Mike Evans” which was completed in collaboration with former NFL reporter Sean K. Jensen.
In his new book, Evans detailed the obstacles he faced during his childhood, how he persevered, and the lessons he learned along the way. The star receiver has never been shy about giving back to the communities that shaped him into becoming the individual he is today, and that includes being open and vulnerable to those who will listen.
The Aggies football program of course took a moment to highlight Evans’ very worthwhile endeavor on social media:

Evans donned the Maroon and White from 2012-2013, recording 151 receptions for 2,499 yards and 17 touchdowns with an average of 16.5 yards per reception. He was named a Consensus All-American for the 2013 season and led the SEC in receiving touchdowns (12) while ranking 10th in the country.
While athletes penning books is not anything new, it’s encouraging to see Evans doing so with the purpose of reaching the next generation. There are so many others that could be in the same position he was in during their formative childhood years, and reading Evans’ story might be a catalyst for helping them carve a pathway to their success.
While it’s easy to look fondly back on his impact on the football field or cheer for his efforts at the NFL level, there’s always time to appreciate an Aggie that also impacts their community in a positive way. Evans is truly an inspiration for the next generation, and it’s a great sight to see! Gig’Em!
