" A lavishly illustrated history of America's exciting gridiron sport "
Now, HERE IS a blast from the past !!!
  • Hardback Book with Dust Jacket by Robert Leckie
  • © Copyright, 1965, by Random House, Inc.


  • Who is generally considered the father of football ?
  • Which United States President threatened to outlaw the gridiron sport ?
  • Which team almost won a game because it was given a fifth down ?
  • Who was the "Galloping Ghost" ?
  • What college star ran the wrong way, scoring a touchdown for the rival team ?
  • What former All-America and pro star became a Supreme Court judge ?
  • Who were the fabulous "Touchdown Twins" ? "

" Football fans will find the answers to these and hundreds of other questions in THE STORY OF FOOTBALL.
In this colorful chronicle {actually filled with black & white photos ;-)}
of the exciting gridiron sport, Robert Leckie traces the development of football from a disorganized free-for-all to the highly complex game we know today.
He shows how professional football grew out of the college sport, and vividly re-creates the traditional rivalries, the famous stars and the great games that all combined to make football "the autumn fever." "

" Here are the superstars, like Red Grange, Jim Thorpe, Whizzer White, Paul Hornung, and Jimmy Brown;
here are the arch rivals, such as Army-Navy, Southern Cal-Notre Dame, Harvard-Yale;
and here are thrilling accounts of the games that made new champions and toppled the old ones. "

" Gridiron enthusiasts of all ages should welcome this fast-moving history of America's most popular college and professional sport.
Crammed with fascinating photographs and anecdotes, it should provide hours of intriguing entertainment. "
