Former UConn Football Star Writes Two Books about Never Giving Up


NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – From football star to author, University of Connecticut Alum Glen Mourning is now writing and teaching to others about the powerful message of never giving up.

“For as long as I can remember, writing was therapeutic. In a sense, going through some of the emotional hard ache of not necessarily making it to the pro’s, I thought what better way to communicate the way that I was feeling through writing,” said Mourning. Overtime he collected his thoughts and lessons learned after his injury into a book that he is now sharing with others.

“The universal message I’m hoping to communicate throughout the story is when one dream comes to end, it doesn’t mean you stop dreaming,” said Mourning.

Both of Mourning’s books “Dreams Interrupted,” and “Care More About Us” are available at
