About the Author

Pat Summerall, considered by most critics and fans alike to be the premier play-by-play man for network coverage of the NFL, has been broadcasting since 1962. His partnership with John Madden began in 1981 and became one of the most well known ever. He has also anchored coverage at Wimbledon, the Masters, and other leading sporting events. Prior to that, Summerall was a star kicker and tight end for the New York Giants teams of the late 1950s and early 1960s.

New York Times bestselling author Michael Levin has also written with Dave Winfield, NFL star Chad Hennings, NBA star Doug Christie, Fox Sports's Chris Myers, and many other celebrities and broadcasters.
