    This is my second purchase, this time for a friend on his 70th birthday. The book is ideal for our generation going back to when we were young and actually playing ourselves.

    A time I treasure - 12/28/2012
    By: from Nashua, New Hampshire

    College and Pro-Football were alive for me in the years featuring Jim Brown and Ernie Davis...both at Syracuse, and for Jim Brown, the Cleveland Browns. Many do not know Jim was a decathlolete...while America viewed Bob Mathias on a Wheaties Box, Jim Brown was better; but he was a person of color. He was also a PAL Boxing champion, is still considered the best Lacrosse Player of all time. He was robbed of the Heisman Trophy because he was a person of color...few athletes were persons of color during his time.
