Holub, Texas Tech's first consensus Division I-A All-American, will be examined, along with more recent stars, like the record-setting Kliff Kingsbury and B.J.

Editorial Reviews

Spike Dykes is a Texas Tech football legend. In his 14 seasons (1986-99) at the Red Raiders' helm, he won more conference games than any other TT coach in history. He was the first coach in more than half a century to lead Texas Tech to the Cotton Bowl and, perhaps more important, the first to defeat Texas five times during his career. In this book, the beloved gridiron mentor shares his favorite stories from his storied career.
