Synopsis

"Few coaches in the history of high school coaching have been able to reach such dedication and determination with their player..." - Post Register

Never did a man have as great an influence on a group of young men as did Coach Vernon Ravsten. Through his example and determination, he taught his team members what courage really is. Because of their love for this inspirational man, these spirited young athletes showed remarkable character as they learned to give more than they had in order to keep a seemingly impossible promise. 

This story and the lessons taught teaches us that nothing in life is impossible if we just focus on our goal and give everything we have. Here is a story for everyone, not just athletes. The values and attitudes taught in this book will inspire all who read its pages. 

"I highly recommend your reading this decidedly entertaining and enlightening work. It tells of exciting football games, funny episodes from the lives of high school students in the mid and late 60's, poignant interludes between individual students/athletes and their mentor/coach and gives great life lessons in a manner easily understood and related with....You'll come away laughing, maybe crying a little, but all the while satisfied that your time has been well spent." - Danny White, Dallas Cowboys Quarterback and Arizona Football Hall of Famer
