9780972982108: The Four Winners: The Head, The Hands, The Foot, The Ball

Knute Rockne (1888 - 1931) was Head Coach at the University of Notre Dame. As Jim Crowley, one of the legendary "Four Horsemen," declared years after, "He has remained America's All American these many years, wielding by the very mention of his name and his achievement a good influence which has shaped the lives of a long parade of All Americans." THE FOUR WINNERS is "the Rock's" only novel. It embodies his philosophy of the role of sports and moral values in building character.

From the Publisher:

THE FOUR WINNERS is Knute Rockne’s only novel. It embodies his philosophy of the role of sports and moral values in building character — a "young adult" novel at least three touchdowns ahead of the competition. As Knute Rockne III states, "THE FOUR WINNERS was written by my grandfather for the expansion of the game of football, but most of all to show that it is a game of intelligence and not just pure muscle. I strongly recommend this book for anyone desiring an understanding of the game of football as played in the 1920s." Dr. Charles Rice, Professor Emeritus of Law at the University of Notre Dame is even more explicit: "This enjoyable little book, by a great teacher of youth, evokes a positive and clean morality that is not a curiosity of the past but our hope for the future."

About the Author:

Knute Rockne (1888-1931) was Head Coach at the University of Notre Dame. As Jim Crowley, one of the legendary "Four Horsemen" declared years after, "He has remained America's All American these many years, wielding by the very mention of his name and his achievement a good influence which has shaped the lives of a long parade of All Americans." Born in Voss, Norway, his family emigrated to the United States in 1893, to join his father who had gone to the US two years earlier. Still the most famous Norwegian American almost three-quarters of a century after his tragic and untimely death in an airplane crash in Kansas in 1931, the Rockne name has a magic that time can never erase, with his career and his philosophy serving as an example for all young people as they strive to come to terms with the modern world.
