I bought this book after seeing a rave review and I was interested in "the best football player you never heard of". The subject matter had promise, but the story telling lacked excitement and was like a collection of news articles and lacked the thrill and emotion I was expecting from a sports biography.

The sadness of a life taken too soon, the mystery of what might have been,the beauty of a flame burning brightly. A great and inspiring story.

I would recommend this book to any Georgia Tech or college football fan who wants to learn more about the only Georgia Tech football player to have his number retired. The book is a brief glimpse into the high school and Georgia Tech careers of Clint Castleberry. The book does a decent job of also painting a picture of the backdrop of the 1942 season, namely the effect that college football had on the war morale and the effect that the war had on college football that year.

The book could have delved deeper into many subjects, but is still a good read for anyone who is interested in the history of Georgia Tech football.

Clint Castleberry was married to my older first cousin, but he was killed in World War II before I was born. I spent my early childhood playing with his daughter, my second cousin. Although my father always said he was the best football player ever, I actually knew very little about him until I discovered this wonderful book. I have since recommended it to other family members including his daughter. Any football fan or Georgia Tech alum would really enjoy it.

We are Ga Tech alumni. We saw this player in our stadium and wanted to read about him. Great book.

I enjoyed and found it hard to put this book down until the last page. Over Christmas, I was thrown together with my son-in-laws dad who's father 'Stumpy' T, also a Georgia Tech All-American, is mentioned in book in the famous Rose Bowl 'wrong way play' that will always remain in football history. I was treated to reviewing Stumpy's scrapbook and his election to the NFL Hall of Fame following his 13 years in the NFL. For GT football lovers it's a must read.

I sent this book to my 16-yr-old brother for Christmas. (He asked for it specifically.) He isn't much of a reader, but he loves football, and especially GT football. I asked him if he liked it, and he said, "It's awesome."
