Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 149969265X, Paperback)

How does sport impact a community, a school, coaches and players? This delightful book is about six-man football adopted by small schools in rural Louisiana during the 1940s and 1950s. The backstories and the stories of the games themselves highlight the values of the times and provide poignant, funny, and inspirational lessons about how football shaped the lives of many who became part of the Greatest Generation. Read about refs who were chased out of town, the woman who was thrown out of a game, unlikely heroes, amazing athletic feats and kids who were transformed into men. Interviews with the coaches, administrators, and players decades later reveal the value and meaning of their participation in the sport and its impact on their lives.
