A Darker Shade of Red
by Lloyd Pye
Every football fan has heard the term "redshirt," but few know what it actually means, or what a year or more as a redshirt can do to the players who endure them. This novel provides an edge-of-your-seat expose of this hidden, hushed-up aspect of college football. No one who reads this stunningly powerful book and gets to know its characters will ever forget it, or forget them.
