The 1972 Washington Redskins were dubbed the Over the Hill Gang by the media, who considered the team of aging veterans too old, too slow, and too ornery to succeed. The day-to-day story of how that team went to the Super Bowl is told in this book, which is the diary of Brig Owens, the team's safety and now a member of the Redskins Ring of Fame. It's all here--the competition, the battles for starting positions, coach George Allen's relentlessly thorough preparations, the humor, the tension, the glamour, and the routine...a story of hope that any football fan of any era will enjoy. In his second year as coach of the Redskins, George Allen had assembled a team of gritty veterans who were perhaps a step slower than they were in their prime, but they turned out to be tougher and more savvy than their younger opponents. Most significantly, they understood the concept and importance of team. The term “Over the Hill Gang” became their rallying cry. They actually embraced the phrase, even as they fought daily to prove it wrong, making a commitment to consistency, excellence, and camaraderie. The end result was the team's first-ever trip to the Super Bowl against the undefeated Miami Dolphins. Reaching the Super Bowl became a lasting victory for hope! If the Over the Hill Gang could do it, couldn’t anyone? Brig Owens kept a diary of observations, strategies, and insights on audiotape throughout that season. Every week, in a corner of the parking lot at Redskins Park, he secretly handed the tapes to his friend, journalist Chuck Cascio. Chuck took the tapes and shaped the content for the book, which was originally published in 1973. The diary is reissued here as an e-book—a type of publication unthinkable forty years ago...almost as unthinkable as the Over the Hill Gang reaching the Super Bowl! Over the Hill to the Super Bowl captures the magic that worked for Washington in 1972...and can work whenever and wherever players and fans believe their team can bring hope to their city.
For ten years the Cleveland Browns compiled a better record and won more championships than any team in pro football history. In their first game they set an all-time attendance record and consistently drew the largest crowds of the post-World War II era. They dominated an upstart league and then silenced their detractors by doing the same to the NFL. The Browns were led by Paul Brown, a football visionary who changed pro football. Most important among his innovations was the leading role the franchise played in the integration of pro sports. While much of their competition continued with the racial exclusion of the past, the Browns featured some of the greatest black players of all-time, men who were an integral part of the Cleveland dynasty. The Best Show in Football: The 1946-1955 Cleveland Browns, Pro Football's Greatest Dynasty tells the story of those players and that dynasty. Included in that story is the construction of the Browns as well as accounts of the team's many victories. Dozens of interviews bring to life the exploits of Otto Graham, Bill Willis, Marion Motley, Lou Groza, Mac Speedie, Len Ford, Dante Lavelli, Frank Gatski, and so many others. In rich detail, The Best Show in Football demonstrates why Cleveland's dynasty was the greatest ever, greater even than several teams that are usually accorded that honor. The conclusions may be surprising but the evidence is all here. And along the way author Andy Piascik provides a wonderful trip back to football's golden age.
“Walk-On U” illustrates the incredible phenomenon of the “College Walk-on.” Depicting the ugly, the bad, and the good, this book is about survival, education, mental toughness, and character building of student athletes who, without athletic scholarships and true to their talents, walk-on the team in search of a dream. The seldom discussed realities of true Walk-On experiences will cover everything from heart, determination, patience, and sheer will of these hope-to-be student athletes as they attempt to conquer massive amounts of adversity and abuse while they willfully pay to practice. This book is about achieving a humbling internal victory, (not seen by the fans), both on and off the field, providing building blocks for future success in life after sports. Interviews across the country from former Walk-Ons, scholarship players, coaches, equipment managers, and trainers will illustrate and substantiate the actual culture of drudgery walk-ons endure. Because of harsh treatment and few rewards, most successful Walk-Ons come away from their experience with more knowledge than their counterpart scholarship athletes and better prepared to face the oncoming world. This book will show that a Walk-On need not ultimately receive a scholarship or play on Saturdays in front of 80,000 people to earn respect or be considered a success story. The never-ending desire to get up after being knocked down and keep coming back over and over again against all odds and reasonable expectations of hope give Walk-Ons the power to conquer their fears and prepare for success in their daily lives, relationships and vocations. This educational and enlightening book is for any of the 8 million high school athletes who are considering walking-on for a college sports team should their dreams of earning an athletic scholarship not come true. After reading these stories, some will conclude that this is not an experience they wish to bear. Others will see an incredible opportunity and challenge, and grasp the chance. Being armed with the information in this book will help these athletes in making sound judgments which can ultimately affect the choice of school, career path, and life direction. The shocking, appalling, and outrageous statements revealed from Walk-Ons of yesterday will provide for a fascinating read that will leave adult sports fans with amazing accounts of heartbreaking testimony and hilarious recounts of unbelievable and mind-blowing stories. Finally, the book will challenge the NCAA members to overturn outdated and unjust rules governing Walk-Ons; from training table to transferring schools. The lowly, disrespected walk-on becomes a leader in the making fueled by passion with purpose. The daily despair becomes the stimulant to conquer their tested will through insurmountable odds forcing them to achieve their greatest potential. It is when their best is brought forth that perceptions change, respect sets in, and opportunities arise. This Walk-On journey becomes a life changing transformation; these under the radar, high-flying overachievers are awarded coveted membership into Walk-On University. No matter the college or university across the country, there is bound to be a satellite campus secretly called, “Walk-On U.” “Walk-On U” is the brand that will feature and focus on the underdog players in college sports, primarily football. Through an ongoing series of books, web site, TV documentaries, annual awards banquet, and screenplay, the Walk-On will be exposed, showcased, publicized and celebrated. Author Tim Lavin was a “Walk-On” at the University of Southern California in 1988 against the advice of most. He literally fought his way into playing time and earned a scholarship. Following graduation, he received two NFL tryouts. His emotional journey has inspired him to create an educational, informational, and entertaining book, and a new brand, “Walk-On U.”
