On November 14, 1970, the Marshall Thundering Herd lost a close, hard-fought game to East Carolina, 17-14, in Greenville, North Carolina. On the return flight, the school and the community of Huntington, West Virginia, lost much more than a football game. The Southern Airways jet crashed into a West Virginia hillside, killing all 75 aboard-players, coaches, university staff, and boosters. It remains the worst sports-aviation disaster ever on U.S. soil. The Marshall Miracle tells the story of that fateful day, but it doesn't end there. In a sense, the plane crash is just the beginning. What follows is the dramatic-some might even say the miraculous-triumph of a team, a university, and a community, from aviation disaster to gridiron glory.
