A Book, action. A magical saga unfolds when a scrawny young bookworm with unfulfilled dreams of football glory crosses paths with an aging high school coach whose dreams have faded. The year was 1969. With a well-deserved reputation for mediocrity and his coaching job on the line, Jack Neumeier looked across the Generation Gap at an undersized, inexperienced crop of candidates for his next team. Throwing out his playbook, he invented football’s wide open spread offense, changing the game of football forever.
