This volume, that Jack Pardee terms a dissertation on six-man football, is not only the definitive rule book for the sport, but includes a thorough sixty-five-year history of Texas six-man competition, the teams that have played, and the coaches who have developed and led them. Because of the continual sprinting, dodging, and aggressive contact demanded in every one of the forty minutes of play, six-man games are won on conditioning. For this reason, the book includes a chapter titled Getting the Team Ready Physically. Strategies for offense and defense are detailed, including the O'Brien Wing Set and the O'Brien Veer, with input, also, for specialty teams. The playbook of over 250 offensive plays from various Texas six-man offensive formations will prove useful to those who compete in the game of six-man football.

C. H. Underwood is a life-long educator who first played six-man football while a student at O'Brien (Texas) High School, where in 1962 his team was the undefeated regional champion. After graduating from Midwestern State University, he returned to teach at O'Brien and to coach six-man football.Review:
"[Six-man football] is in many ways more strenuous than 11-man ... demanding better physical conditioning ... and making for extremely aggressive contact. Football fans who enjoy good open-field running, blocking and tackling enjoy the six-man game as played in Texas today."
