Product Dimensions: 6 x 1.1 x 9.1 inches

This is a long needed book about the struggles and victories of Black High School Football in Texas. I personally am just old enough to remember the dismantling of segregation in Texas public schools. It did not happen quickly or easily.

Author, Michael Hurd tells the story of struggling black high schools, with minimum resources, doing great things both academically and on the sports field. It is for the most part an untold story.

Mr. Hurd uses the stories and memories of those who live it to tell the bigger story that has been all but erased from common knowledge. To bring it back I recommend that every Texas football fan read this book to learn where we have been and where we are going.
