For a moment, they were heroes ...

All of us have had a McKinney High in our lives-a time for growing up, for growing together, a time when, for a moment, we were the best we could be.

Bestselling writer Ken Gire's McKinney High, 1946 is the story of a high-school football team during the post-war years in a small Texas mill town. The team hasn't won a game in two years. They have shabby facilities-and no coach. As one sportswriter said, "They couldn't beat a good junior high team."

Enter Pete Williams, the coach whose job it is not just to shape a new team but to change the very lives of his players: a dirt-poor kid from the farm, a mill kid on his way to reform school, the team's manager who knows he'll never be a star. Enter, also, Pete's wife, who struggles to make ends meet, deals with being a coach's wife, and faces the sometimes harsh prejudices of small-town life.

This is a captivating Hoosiers-type story about camaraderie, insecurity, triumph, and defeat. Based loosely on the life of the author's own father, McKinney High, 1946 has all the real-life intimacy of a close friend and all the nostalgia of an old photograph album.
Ken Gire is a full-time writer living in Monument, Colorado. His other books include Intimate Moments with the Savior, the Gold Medallion Award winning Incredible Moments with the Savior, Instructive Moments with the Savior, and A Father's Gift. He is also the co-author of When You Can't Come Back with Dave and Jan Dravecky, and the co-author of Miracle of Life with Robert and Mary Wells and his wife, Judy Gire.
