Overview

In December 2001, as fires still burned beneath the World Trade Center ruins, West Point cadet Chad Jenkins and Naval Academy midshipman Brian Stann faced off at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia in what would become the most-watched college football game of the decade: the matchup between the Army Black Knights and the Navy Midshipmen.

When Stann, a Navy linebacker, came into contact with Jenkins, the Army quarterback, for the first time, his team was behind by thirteen points. Yet he managed to land the perfect tackle against Jenkins. Though these two players would not meet again for another decade, Stann and Jenkins shared the same path: both went to war. As first-class officers, each serving several tours of duty, they led soldiers and marines, and witnessed and participated in events they never imagined possible.

Editorial Reviews

DAVID LIPSKY
“There are two stories in American life—how we play, how we fight. Steve Eubanks tells a masterful story about both, along with a story of two extraordinary people, from two extraordinary institutions, moving through extraordinary times. All American is... inspiring... It’s history lived from the inside.”
JOHN FEINSTEIN
There is nothing like Army-Navy... The young men who play... have all volunteered to die for their country... [Eubanks] tells you how special you have to be to play in this game—and to... make the kinds of sacrifices no other athletes even think about making...”
Hall of Fame Coach LOU HOLTZ
