A high school football player’s memoir of rebellion against a “winning” coach who encouraged brutality and bullying and ignored concussions and other serious injuries to his players. An engaging, candid, often grim, often wry account of growing up in Pittsburgh’s African-American community in the 1950’s and early 60’s. This book should be read by young athletes, their coaches and their mentors.
