Summary
"Before the Super Bowl, before "Monday Night Football," even before the NFL, there was Red Grange: a softspoken midwesterner catapulted into the public eye in 1924 when he scored four touchdowns for Illinois in the first twelve minutes of a historic game against the University of Michigan. From this herculean beginning, the "Galloping Ghost" went on to a trailblazing career as a professional player, Hollywood football idol, and broadcaster." "John Carroll follows the career of this unassuming pioneer who helped lift pro football above its reputation as "a dirty little business run by rogues and bargain-basement entrepreneurs." Grange became one of the first athlete-heroes and the first major sports figure to serve as a play-by-play broadcast commentator."--BOOK JACKET
