More About the Author

I write books that I would like to read, stories about sports and film icons who had an impact on American history. People like John Wayne, Joe Louis, and Muhammad Ali. My most recent books have explored the role that college football players and coaches have played during times of national crisis. Just published is "Rising Tide: Bear Bryant, Joe Namath, and Dixie's Last Quarter," a book I wrote with Ed Krzemienski. It details the relationship between Bear Bryant and Joe Namath during the early 1960s, a time of CIvil Rights struggles, a violent backlash, and the emergenge of Alabama as the finest football team in the nation. It features two iconic personalities fighting for victories on the field and their careers off the field.

In 2011 I published "A Team for America: The Army-Navy Game That Rallied a Nation." It's the story of a West Point football team during World War II, striving to win a national championship before they shipped off to the battle front. It was their last chance to be boys before the nation demanded that they be men. During the months between D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge the team gave the millions of American soldiers around the world something to celebrate. After their last game General Douglas MacArthur wired Coach Red Blaik, "THE GREATEST OF ALL ARMY TEAMS. WE HAVE STOPPED THE WAR TO CELEBRATE YOUR MAGNIFICENT SUCCESS."
