"As both a former college coach and a middle-school teacher, I think this is a fantastic book. It teaches kids about football's modern greats and timeless legends. It goes beyond stats and championships, and talks about players' backgrounds and the adversity they overcame. I'm excited to share this book with my students and my son." —Matt Minich, former assistant coach at South Dakota State University
