Overview

When directed toward you, two of the more humbling words that can ever be uttered are: "You're fired!" For Red Cashion, however, being fired by both the Southwest and Southland Conferences forced him to make significant attitude changes that took him all the way to the Texas Sports Hall of Fame. Red's rise to prominence in the NFL-many sportswriters described him as the most well-known official NFL history-was primarily the result of Cashion adopting a much more enthusiastic approach. He only achieved his dreams when he stopped blending into the background and began passionately asserting his personality with a trademark call that became recognized across the country. First dooowwwnnn...and life to go! is an inspiring, captivating story that accentuates the power of a positive attitude. Cashion also recounts fascinating stories about some of the NFL's biggest personalities during his 25-year tenure in the league, and he provides strong opinions about the game's current direction. Cashion's advice for protecting current players from concussions, for example, is as revolutionary as it is rudimentary. His vision of the NFL's future is every bit as intriguing as his colorful description of his time in the league.

"Red represented quality, judgment and a little special flair!" - Former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue

"First dooowwwnnn is a first-rate read by a first-class man." -Former Texas A&M and Dallas Cowboys linebacker Dat Nguyen

    I am a personal friend of Red Cashion, and it is like he is read

    I am a personal friend of Red Cashion, and it is like he is reading this
    book out loud to me. It is a terrific book about all the stories he
    tells us in person, sadly referees today are so widely criticized, but
    he was and is a beloved official in the NFL by the fans and the League,
    as well as a beloved individual in College Station, TX. Go out and read
    this book, he tells you what it was like to stand on the field with the
    greats, such as Joe Montana and Walter Payton. A quick spoiler he writes
    how he and Walter shared some fun memories, such as at the bottom of a
    dog pile, Payton reaches out and unties Red's shoe laces and he is
    trying to get a spot. Great stories and really motivating on how he was
    fired from one of the weakest college divisions but eventually pursued
    to become one of the greatest referees of all time. He is a very modest
    man that loved the game of football, and is friendly to everyone. My
    family went from "Hello, I believe I have seen you officiate on
    TV" on an airplane to going to his house every week to watch the
    games. Truly is a blessing and a great man with an abundance of stories.
    If you enjoy the game of football please read this book, if you don't
    like it, I will buy it back from you.
