America's soccer legacy has its roots in St. Louis, where European immigrants played their own raw, competitive version of the game in the city's working class Roman Catholic neighborhoods. When the NCAA sanctioned soccer as an official Division I sport in 1959, St. Louis University got the chance to prove its mettle. SLU won their first National Championship and would win ten more over the next fifteen years, setting the bar for collegiate soccer and creating a St. Louis soccer dynasty. This book includes a DVD of the new PBS documentary, "A Time for Champions." The book and DVD tell story of how a sport became more than a game as generations of young Americans battled for neighborhood, church and city. Blue-collar, urban, and Catholic, they kicked their way from the parochial playing fields to the halls of history.
