This book brings back and reinforces the memories of a by-gone era. I watched the season unfold and saw the President Nixon proclaimed national championship game between the University of Arkansas and the University of Texas played in Arkansas. I also watched the New Year's Cotton Bowl Classic between Texas and Notre Dame which Texas won to lay undisputed claim to the mythical national college football championship. Freddie Steinmark was a sidelight to this season, and we probably would not have heard of his book except for the fact he was an undersized over achiever who was the starting defensive safety for the University of Texas. Freddie played most of the season in teriffic pain. After the Arkansas game he let the coaches and trainers know he had a problem with his leg. After learning he had a malignant tumor in his thigh the leg was amputated at the hip in order to try to save his life. This happened shortly after the Arkansas game. Freddie set his goal to attend the New Year's Day game against Notre Dame which three years earlier had turned him down for an athletic scholarship for his lack of size. On New Year's Day there was Freddie on the sidelines on his crutches to cheer on his team mates. The last chapter in this book was written by Freddie's Catholic priest since he had lost his life to cancer. Sometimes true to life adventures make a better story than fiction.

Such a heartwarming book for any person to read especially young people. It teaches courage and commitment. Written by the Freddy himself, makes it so much more meaningful to the reader. Thank you, Amazon, for having this book since it is no longer in print.
