NFL and College Football Books for Children & Adults - Coaching, Fiction, Biographies (3159 words)
Coach Pete Carroll—twice fired by NFL teams—seemed an unlikely choice to lead them back to glory.
But the new coach silenced his critics with unsinkable enthusiasm, an innovative approach, and quick results: three straight trips to major bowl games, two Heisman-winning quarterbacks, and a 22-game winning streak that led to consecutive national championships.
Only one other coach has won more football games than Paterno; his team has won more bowl games than any other; and he does it all the way it was meant to be done, with his players succeeding in the classroom as well as on the field and in the pro ranks.

We had jazz recordings, but you listen to a recording of Miles Davis or Clifford Brown or Dizzy Gillespie, you are so far away from what that is, it just seems like another world.
But it was funny, we would go and play, and I would know guys who were on the opposite team, and so it was just interesting, it was cool.
I remember they would be books about basketball players in Indiana, like little high school competition books.
