"They Call Me Coach"- John Wooden. Great read and great thoughts on life by the legend himself.

Romanowksi's (sp?) autobiography "Romo" is a good one. He's one crazy dude.

A Few Seconds Of Panic was great. Very cool insider view of the NFL, training camps, and the psychological roller coaster guys on the bubble face in contrast with proven stars.
I would have enjoyed it just as much if it weren't about the Broncos.

Ochocinco's book was lulz, it's a quick read.

if you like football, read blindside. the book is actually much more focused on football as a whole and the evolution of the game from the 80s rather than just michael oher.
