    This is a great book about a different, earlier era in high school and college football. Frank Sexton talks about his dreams of playing for Tennessee, where he worked as a stadium vendor while starring on a local high school team. The Vols weren't interested till too late and by then, he was on his way to play for SEC rival, Georgia Tech, coached by the great former Vol All-American, Bobby Dodd. Sexton mixes in scripture and Christian lessons that served him well as he worked diligently to use his modest talents to fulfill his dreams of college stardom, albeit at a different place than UT. He mentions a lot of stars of the era, whom he saw up close and personal. Names like Mallon Faircloth, Jimmy Sidle, Tucker Frederickson, Joe Namath, Lee Roy Jordan, and Billy Lothridge. He clearly recognizes all these decades later the strengths and weaknesses he had, humbly giving God credit for his successes. I think this would be a great gift for any man who remembers football the way it was played when Bowden Wyatt, Shug Jordan, Bear Bryant, and Bobby Dodd were in their prime, especially those good men who decades later go to church faithfully and serve humbly, doing the Lord's work here on earth.
