About the Book:

You can hear bodies collide and feel tendons pop as four-time All-Pro guard Ed Newman takes you inside one of the world’s most unforgiving workplaces—the NFL. Brainy, candid, vivid, and visceral, Newman’s Warrior Judge highlights his transformation from a hapless Miami Dolphins rookie into an elite player and then, by way of a law degree, an elected judge in South Florida.

From humble beginnings as a Jewish kid in Long Island, Newman is drafted by Don Shula and his “perfect season” 1972 Miami Dolphins. He overcomes culture shock, alpha-dog hazing, coaches’ doubts, cancer, injury, and antisemitism. Newman ultimately earns a starring role alongside future Hall of Famers, like Dan Marino, Larry Little, and Dwight Stephenson. Hovering over this constellation of talent is Coach Shula, always a relentless critic and sometimes a mentor and father figure. Newman’s story climaxes when he juggles law school final exams with Super Bowl XIX. Warrior Judge is as inspiring as it is lively and surprising; it’s a tale of adversity vanquished by against-all-odds determination.

 

About the Authors:

Don Shula and the “Perfect Season” Miami Dolphins selected Ed Newman in the sixth round of the 1973 NFL draft out of Duke University. Ed played 12 seasons with the team, participated in one winning Super Bowl and two American Conference championships, and earned All-Pro recognition four times before reluctantly breaking from the Dolphins with a knee injury. Ed went on to pursue a law degree, where he served as a civil litigator and then as a County Court Judge for Miami-Dade for 28 years.

Holly became a Miami Dolphins fan simply because it was “her father’s team.” After graduating from Duke University with summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa honors, Holly earned a master’s degree in organizational psychology from Teachers College of Columbia University. She used her credentials to shape the culture of numerous Fortune 500 companies. Following the birth of her children, Holly shifted her focus to her family and fulfilled her dream of memorializing her father’s story.
