Michael Oher book signing

Michael Oher's "I Beat the Odds"

I had the privilege this week of interviewing Michael Oher at Newman when he came for a book signing. Our middle school students submitted questions for the short Q&A portion of the event, and then Michael signed books for several hours. He talked about growing up a Cowboys fan, and he talked a bit about the The Blind Side. He thought the movie did a pretty good job of portraying the events, but he did want to point out that Leigh Anne did not teach him how to play football.

Newman Alums Missy Sutherlin and Erin O'Brien with Oher

As many of you know, Sean Tuohy, went to Newman. This spring we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of when Coach Tuohy, Sean’s father, started at Newman. It will kickoff our alumni weekend and should be a lot of fun.
