Game of My Life: Ohio State: Memorable Stories of Buckeye Football

Overview

A.J. Hawk can isolate the game of his life, the 2006 Fiesta Bowl against Notre Dame, not because of individual statistics, but because of what the game represented. "I think the fact that it was the end of an amazing four years-four big bowl wins; three Michigan wins; lots of victories in those four years; and an amazing group of teammates and coaches is why it felt like the game of my life," Hawk said.

Overview

A.J. Hawk can isolate the game of his life, the 2006 Fiesta Bowl against Notre Dame, not because of individual statistics, but because of what the game represented. "I think the fact that it was the end of an amazing four years-four big bowl wins; three Michigan wins; lots of victories in those four years; and an amazing group of teammates and coaches is why it felt like the game of my life," Hawk said.

Jan White has a different reason for the game of his life: He scored his first touchdown as a Buckeye, playing a position he didn't want to necessarily play. "It became a footrace I was determined to win," White says of his 72-yard reception from Rex Kern against Northwestern in 1968. "It was incredible. The only chance there was of me not scoring on that play was if I had fallen down. I had enough confidence in my speed-I was a state record-holder in track in high school-but you just never know."

Whoever they are and whatever the reason, there always is "the" game in a player's memory bank. The folks, whose stories are chronicled in Game of My Life: Memorable Stories of Ohio State Football, are a compendium of the shy, gregarious, polite, reverent, modest, and honest. They tell you why a certain game was the best, providing the detail, the color, and the emotion that only a player can share.

Football fans, most especially those card-carrying members of Buckeye Nation, will be enlightened and entertained by these stories. Buckeye greats such as Archie Griffin, Cris Carter, Mike Lanese, and Bob Hoying relive their legendary moments-from the sidelines to the huddle, from the depths of impending defeat to the pinnacle of glory. It just doesn't get any better.

    Nice trip through memory lane

    Game of my life is an enjoyable memoir-type read for any Buckeye fan- especially one over 40. There are a few inaccuracies with team mates and player's names in a few stories, but I loved the way the book is set up. Highly recommended by this Buckeye fan.
