“The Locker Room” discusses difficult issues faced by coaches and athletes in today’s society.

A local motivational speaker is continuing his national success with a new book discussing difficult issues faced by coaches and athletes in today’s society.

Damon West tackles tough topics in his new book “The Locker Room,” which focuses on the power of communication to heal hurt and build a unified team in any situation. West partnered with player development coach and fellow motivational speaker, Stephen Mackey, to write the book.

A Port Arthur native who starred as a quarterback at Thomas Jefferson High School and North Texas University, West’s life then took a tough turn after a career-ending injury. He turned to drugs and alcohol, and spent seven years in prison for a spree of burglaries in the Dallas area.

But West has changed his life since being paroled in 2016. He’s become one of the premiere speakers for athletic teams across the country, regularly appearing in front of college football teams such as Clemson, Alabama, Texas and more.

West authored two books before his latest release. His autobiography “The Change Agent” was followed by bestseller “The Coffee Bean.”

Last weekend, West appeared at the Museum of the Gulf Coast for a book-signing event for “The Locker Room.” The book debuted at No. 9 on the Wall Street Journal’s best sellers list when released last month.
