For the college football fan this is a must read. But even if you are not into football you will enjoy the story-line as you can see this kid go from a boy to a man. He has to make some tough moral and ethical decisions in football, personal relationships, and life in general. It is enjoyable to read even if you are not into football at all.
It’s a good read, I sincerely enjoyed it.
Down Set Hut: The Untold Story of College Football offers you more than just a peek behind the curtains of the trials and tribulations of attaining one's dreams. Matthew Nighswonger gives you a chance to immerse yourself into the experiences of both Charlie and Blake, but he also gives you a chance to grasp what Mary and April, their beloved partners, felt, too. With great detail and intense writing, Nighswonger has written an amazing story that is rarely found. Embrace what college football is really like through Matthew Nighswonger's prose, and Down Set Hut will lead you to never view college football quite the same again.

I had the pleasure of meeting the author, Matthew Nighswonger, at a group book signing in a local Las Vegas book store. The book looked very interesting and the author is a former college football player so I bought a copy. I recommend you do the same.
Down, Set, Hut is a story centered around a college football team's season. The two main characters are the team's offensive captain & the team's defensive coordinator. The story follows their lives through an entire school year. The book is set around football but it is really a book about leadership, dedication, relationships and maturing into an adult.
The author did a great job putting together a plot and developing the characters. The characters are described in detailed as are the settings. At times I felt like I was in the huddle or team meeting.
I highly recommend "Down, Set, Hut: The Untold Story of College Football" by Matthew William Nighswonger
