Overview

The legacy of the Marshall players who perished transcends wins and losses. Their tragic deaths squashed the likelihood of a bloody race riot on campus. The evening of November 14, 1970 was damp and chilly with a steady drizzle and dense fog. Students at Marshall University had no idea that the night's horrific events would change their lives forever.

On this night, a plane crash wiped out most of the school's football team. Unless you were there, you could never fully comprehend the gravity of grief that engulfed Huntington, West Virginia, in the days following the worst aviation disaster in the history of American sports.

I know.

I was there.

I'll never forget.

It could have been me on that plane.

I played football at MU for two seasons. A year before the tragedy, I left the team for personal reasons. When the school began the daunting task of resurrecting its football program in the spring of '71, it was a no-brainer decision for me to rejoin the team and become part of the rebuilding process.

Media projects devoted to the plane crash provide well-deserved notoriety. Still, there are glaring omissions. Now, for the first time, former Marshall defensive back Craig T. Greenlee tells the real story - the whole story - about Thundering Herd football from back in the day.

    Not sure. Expected more about the tragedy and how the University responded but really didn't get that from the read. Seems the book is more about the author than the incident.

    This is a MUST read!! You won't be able to put it down!!

    This book is undoubtedly one the best I have read on ANY subject in quite some time. Mr. Greenlee has captured the essence, atmosphere, and
    utter devastation caused by this tragedy of the most epic proportions. This book will leave you with an ever-increasing gratitude for the God-given gift we call LIFE.

    Intriguing story about Marshall plane crash

    "November Ever After" is an intriguing story about the airplane crash that killed the Marshall football team in 1970. We all probably saw the movie, "We Are Marshall." Craig Greenlee, the author, was a football player at Marshall back then, and he should have been on that plane. But circumstances - and God's will - spared his life. This book explores how fate was kind to Greenlee, but he also talks about the racial climate of being a black man on a white campus in West Virginia. I want others to know about Greenlee's book.
