Overview

Fading Echoes: A True Story of Rivalry and Brotherhood from the Football Field to theFields of Honor by Mike Sielski

Now in paperback-a true story of hometown heroes.

In a state that prides itself on hard-hitting gridiron epics, Doylestown, Pennsylvania, was home to the greatest high school football rivalry: the Central Bucks West, captained by senior fullback/linebacker Bryan Buckley, versus the Central Bucks East, led by senior lineman Colby Umbrell.

Bryan and Colby would meet each other as opponents on the game field, but their dreams and devotion to their country led each of them to the conflict in the Middle East-Colby as an Army Ranger, and Bryan as a Marine.

Only one would make it back to Doylestown. And nothing about them, their families, or their hometown's connection to football would ever be the same
