Description

How does a young basketball star become the close friend and trainer for world-class boxer, Roy Jones Jr.? Through compassion for others, a spirit of integrity, and the willingness to make trade-offs.

At the tender age of seven, Alfy Smith found his purpose in life. Gifted with phenomenal athletic skill, he was bound for the NBA until a small injury in college inflicted huge consequences. But he persevered and traded one dream for another.

"The trade-off leads to the payoff,” he says.

A chance meeting with Roy Jones Jr. led to a coaching opportunity, access to celebrities, and travels around the world. Most of all, it inspired a deep friendship with a man who became closer than a brother.

Trade-Off shares exhilarating stories of triumph and heart wrenching tales of defeat. Its pages hold timeless lessons of love, loss, and leadership from one-of-a-kind character, “Big Al.”
