This is the true story of a young boy growing up in a highly religious, football-minded small midwestern town with a dream of playing football for the Zion Benton High School Zee Bees. Bob Osmon overcame a boyhood illness through hard work and made a pact with his best friend to condition themselves and improve so that they could win the championship in their senior year. They encountered Evan Ellis, a tough, almost brutal coach. Coach Ellis was harsh and demanded much of the boys...enough to win the championship. Zee Bees is an emotional and exciting look at High School life in the rock 'n roll 1950s, written lovingly by the man who lived it!

What People are Saying About This
"Zee Bees took me vividly back to my football days...the hard work, the bruises, the excitement, the camaraderie, the emotional ups and downs, ...it's all there. This is an inspirational book that teaches the lessons that team sports teaches so well...how to establish goals, stick to it, work together, ...and succeed! I highly recommend Zee Bees for readers of all ages!"--(Roger Staubach, Heisman Trophy Winner, NAVY 1963, All Pro Quarterback Dallas Cowboys)
