When author Steven P. Locke was a twelve-year-old boy growing up in Canal Winchester, Ohio, he witnessed something extraordinary-a championship football season, coached by his father Mike, that for a brief moment captivated a small Ohio town. A combination memoir and sports history, Little Locke and the Mighty Indians of 1975 chronicles the high school football team's winning year from the perspective of the coach's son. It paints a portrait of the town and its people as it was at the time-the way people lived, the music they listened to, the television shows they watched, their politics, and the mores of the time. It also focuses on the ten-game season-how football was practiced and played, the grueling nature of two-a- days, his father's coaching style, the growing attention paid to the team as each victory led to more pressure to succeed the following week, and the town that followed and cheered them on in summer heat, driving rain, bitter cold, and disappointment. A snapshot of a town, its people, and their way of life in the second half of the twentieth century, Little Locke and the Mighty Indians of 1975 provides a firsthand look into the sense of wonderment and excitement of the experience from the eyes of a twelve-year-old boy
