"Life on the Line has the most authentic football scenes in American literature. It took me back to my days as a player -- I could taste the dirt in my mouth, feel the sting of sweat in my eyes, rejoice in the beauty and violence of the game."
Charter member of the UNC Club Football Team
"Life on the Line sweeps you up in the fast-paced world of two boys becoming men, set against the backdrop of small-town American life in 1965."
author of “Play On”
"From its first sentence, Life on the Line wraps you in a gripping story of physical and emotional conflict, the violence of football, plus love and unexpected redemption."
