But then World War II ...
But then World War II intervened, and Castleberry became, instead, another young man whose destiny was cut short. His #19 is the only number ever retired in the illustrious history of Georgia Tech football.
Bill Chastain weaves Clint Castleberry's story around other legends of Georgia Tech football--including John Heisman, William Alexander, and Bobby Dodd-to create a glorious portrait of a proud football tradition and America's Greatest Generation.
"One of the great "what-if" stories in college football history. The story of Clint Castleberry is really the story of our Greatest Generation."
--from the foreword by Tony Barnhart, Mr. College Football and author of Southern Fried Football
"Here's a great storyteller with an oversized story to tell. Clint Castleberry died 67 years ago. He lives in these pages."
--Martin Fennelly, The Tampa Tribune
"Bill Chastain does a great job of capturing this unique American hero."
--Wes Durham, Director of Broadcasting, "Voice of the Yellow Jackets"
"The best football player you never heard of, who dashed across the gridiron for just one season, long ago."
-- Frank Deford, Sports Illustrated and Hall of Fame sportswriter; NPR Morning Edition commentator; author of Everybody's All-American, Bliss Remembered, and Alex: The Life of a Child
