A deeply moving and painfully honest memoir from the trailblazing, World Cupâwinning, Olympic gold medalist, and US Womenâs soccer goalie Briana Scurry

Briana Scurry was a pioneer on the US Womenâs National Team. She won gold in Atlanta in 1996, the first time womenâs soccer was ever played in the Olympics. She was a key part of the fabled â99ers,â making an epic save in the decisive penalty-kick shootout in the final. Scurry captured her second Olympic gold in 2004, cementing her status as one of the premier players in the world. She was the only Black player on the team, and she was also the first player to be openly gay. It was a singularly amazing ride, one that Scurry handled with her trademark generosity and classâqualities that made her one of the most popular players ever to wear a US jersey.

But Scurryâs storybook career ended in 2010 when a knee to the head left her with severe head trauma. She was labeled âtemporarily totally disabled,â and the reality was even worse. She spiraled into depression, debt, and endured such pain that she closed out her closest friends and soccer soulmates. She pawned her gold medals. She walked to the edge of a waterfall and contemplated suicide. It seemed like the only way out until Scurry made her greatest save of all.

A memoir of startling candor, My Greatest Save is a story of triumph, tragedy, and redemption from a woman who has broken through barriers her entire life.
