How do we get young people off the bench and into the game? Strong, committed father figures, ready to train, prepare, coach and mentor young people so they can grow into champions. Eagle Academy doesn't just teach academic skills, it models character, so that Eagle graduates can be successful men -the next generation of the men and fathers we need. David Banks shows us how to stand up and save our boys. --Allan Houston, General Manager for the New York Knicks


David Banks knows that the teaching, mentoring and support that young people receive can make the difference in whether their stories end in tragedy or in triumph. I was fortunate to have individuals in my life, David included and many others like him, who helped me to see more than what was directly in front of me. The more the Eagle Academy approach, and success it has seen, can be shared, the more young people can find their way to their own triumphs. --Wes Moore, author of The Other Wes Moore The more the Eagle Academy approach and its successes can be shared, the more opportunities young people will have to find their way to their own triumphs. --Wes Moore, author of The Other Wes Moore Soar is the rare book that can bring tears to your eyes while showing the way to deep and meaningful social change: how we can significantly reshape our educational system for young men. Perhaps now we can stop waiting for Superman, thanks to our real-life mentor, David Banks, employing the wonderful educational models of Eagle Academy. I pray that all of us, mothers and fathers, teachers and employers, policymakers and politicians - all the citizens of this nation who have seen boys become an 'endangered species' in our public schools - have the fortitude that he has shown to cry out for, work for, and demand the change he offers us. --William Pollack, PhD, author of the New York Times bestseller, Real Boy, Associate Clinical Professor, Dept. of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Founder and Director, Centers for Men and Boys Soar is the rare book that can bring tears to your eyes while showing the way to deep and meaningful social change: how we can significantly reshape our educational system for young men.

David Banks doesn t just tell us what should be done, he is telling us what he has done and the results are stunning. This book is a blueprint for the rest of America to follow. --Geoffrey Canada, President and CEO Harlem Children s Zone David Banks is not just an extraordinary educator, he's a great innovator. The Eagle Academy defied political correctness to do what was right for young men facing enormous challenges. It is a big idea that is saving lives and providing hope. --Joel Klein, ex-Chancellor of the New York City Department of Education How do we get young people off the bench and into the game?
