When Ross Fortier signed on as head football coach at Moorhead State College in 1970, there was little reason to believe he could transform the Dragons into a major player on the regional and national level. It didn't take Fortier long to begin collecting conference titles and advancing to post-season play. That Moorhead State became a certified NAIA stronghold by doing football the right way is reason enough for celebrating, but it was his guidance and inspiration that led a legion of former players to a rich variety of post-collegiate careers. They became doctors and lawyers, high school, college and professional coaches, business leaders and CEOs, national talk show hosts, professional wrestlers, high school principals and even college presidents. They followed his lead, remembered many of the lessons football taught and dared to dream big. That is arguably Fortier's greatest legacy.

Shortly before he passed away in January 2015, much-loved U.S. sports commentator Stuart Scott completed work on this memoir. It was both a labour of love and a love letter to life itself. Not only did Stuart relate his personal story, he shared his intimate struggles to keep his story going. Struck by appendicular cancer in 2007, Stuart battled this rare disease with tenacity and vigour. He wanted to be there for his daughters as an immutable example of determination and courage. Every Day I Fight is a saga of love and an inspiration to us all.
