Navy Football, Clary, Jack
1 Clary, Jack Navy Football
Naval Institute Press 1997 1557501068 / 9781557501066 Hardcover New 
Heisman Trophy winners Joe Bellino and Roger Staubach and other Hall of Famers such as Dick Scott and Don Whitmire are just a few of Navy's football players whose illustrious careers on the gridiron earned their teams fame. In this history of the sport at the U.S. Naval Academy, noted sports journalist Jack Clary captures the excitement of their efforts along with the hundreds of other players who contributed to the legends of the game and its unique academy traditions. From 1879, the year of Navy's first game, through the banner years of the 1960s, to the resurgence of the sport's success in 1996, Clary chronicles more than eleven decades of the program. Football fans will delight in the almost play-by-play examination of the ten greatest Army-Navy games, beginning with the first game in 1890 and including the classic tie in 1926 that secured Navy's only national championship, and the three most exciting finishes ever in 1946, 1963, and 1989. Another important part of the book is the profiles of significant players (Jack Dalton, Slade Cutter, Bill Busik, Napoleon McCallum, and others) and outstanding coaches (Paul Dashiell, Bill Ingram, Swede Larson, Eddie Erdelatz, Wayne Hardin, George Welsh, and Charlie Weatherbie). The book also describes the wartime experiences of some of the players, including Medal of Honor recipients. Readers learn the origins of Navy's famed fight song "Anchors Aweigh, " the academy's colors, and its mascot. Illustrated with more than two hundred photographs, this book will provide hours of enjoyment to everyone interested in football, the Navy, and midshipmen athletes. Retail 46.95 Our Price 23.50

Landry the Legend and the Legacy, St. John, Bob
2 St. John, Bob Landry the Legend and the Legacy
Word Publishing 2000 0849916704 / 9780849916700 Hard cover Like New 
From his unique vantage point as the dean of Dallas sports writers, Bob St. John brings us a soul-stirring portrait of one of America's most loved heroes-Tom Landry-who was, for twenty-nine years, the Dallas Cowboys' only head coach. Recounting Landry's phenomenal rise to coaching fame, St. John gives us glimpses of Landry as the intramural champion in light heavyweight boxing at the University of Texas, the decorated military veteran, the rugged college halfback, and the dedicated husband and father of a family that mattered more to him than any of his legendary football teams. For years St. John covered the Cowboys for the Dallas Morning News. So he brings to these pages a wealth of inside tales and touching vignettes of the coach who made them "America's team." As he traces the Cowboys' illustrious history to show us Tom Landry in action, St. John chronicles •Those first agonizing years when the talent-poor Cowboys got pulverized by tough NFL teams •The incredible ten-year coaching contract Murchison awarded to Landry after his first four humiliating seasons •The first glimmerings of glory when Don Meredith, Bob Lilly, Mel Renfro, Lee Roy Jordan, and Walt Garrision became household names •The Glory years-the Staubach years-with back-to-back Super Bowl contending teams •The dog-days at the end of Landry's coaching career when the NFL's parity rules depleted the Cowboy's arsenal once more •The seismic shock in Dallas when the team's new owner fired the world's favorite coach Thousands gathered to honor "the man in the hat" shortly before he died. Former President George Bush said to him, "You're an inspiration to all who have ever watched or played the game of football." St. John recalls that moment: "As Landry walked off the speaker's stand it would be the last time most people would ever see him. That familiar face that seemed to be chiseled in stone with deep-set, pale eyes that could almost become slits when he smiled or deeply concentrated the chine that jutted out would become a fading memory. And then Landry walked away and was gone." But he has not been forgotten.
