What People are saying about this

Larry Kane
You won't get these stories anywhere else. Matt Leon has woven the real fabric of sports, not the celluloid stories of overpaid and marginal stars, but the true grit of athletics in America. Matt's book will give you chills as you read the irony, the courage and the raw talent of Matt's world. I love this book! (Larry Kane, Longtime Philadelphia Anchorman and Author)
Tom Shirley
Matt Leon has done a tremendous job covering sports for KYW in and around the tri state area for a number of years. I am truly honored to a part of "Under Your Nose", the first literary work of my good friend. You will enjoy his unique ability to reveal seldom told stories that are record breaking, heroic and also funny. A great book from an even better person. Enjoy. {Tom Shirley - Athletic Director and Head Women's Basketball Coach at Philadelphia University (Also in the book)}
Kevin Small
Wow, what a book! Matt's passion for 'real' sports stories, and especially real Philly sports stories, are on full display. (Ursinus Men's Basketball Coach Kevin Small)
