After 30 years in college football coaching, including five years as Rice's head coach and five years as Duke's head coach, Fred Goldsmith has terrific stories to tell. They're all in this delightfully homespun book dedicated to the extraordinary career of an extraordinary coach and family man. Fred didn't have to win the ACC Coach of the Year award and the Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year award after guiding the perennial underdog Duke Blue Devils to an 8-4 record in 1994 to know that he was put on this earth to guide young men on and off the gridiron. He knew that in 1974 when his college coaching career started at Florida A&M. He knew that while coaching at the Air Force Academy and at Arkansas. And he knew that when he retired from Lenoir Rhyne in 2011. Well done, Coach Goldsmith. Well done.
