About this title

Synopsis:

The Fields of Fall follows several high school football dynasties in Iowa for a year. The book is an enlightening and entertaining ride through the 2010 season; dissecting the teams' philosophies and telling the stories of the people and the communities that make the game so special. Fields of Fall captures the emotional power of the game, detailing the teams' journeys through a season of highs and lows - and describes the fun that everyone was having.

From the Back Cover:

Across the state of Iowa there are towns where high school football is less a game and more a way of life. Bigger schools certainly have their traditions, but in some of Iowa's smaller towns, football is the heartbeat of the community; a center of activity; an object of intense passion for both the school and the community as a whole. In these football epicenters the game has been turned into an art form, young men who excel at it become local heroes, and winning is second nature--but never taken for granted.
 
Not only are the young men in these towns learning the game of football, they are being taught valuable life lessons that will pay dividends long after their playing days are over. By teaching their players how to work effectively as a team and the importance of dedication, sacrifice and discipline, coaches are primarily concerned with developing the character of their players--and thus winning football games becomes the result.
 
The Fields of Fall follows several of the best known football dynasties in Iowa--as well as some lesser known programs--for an entire year. The book is an enlightening and entertaining ride through the 2010 season; dissecting the teams' philosophies on football, education and life in general; and telling the stories of the people and the communities that make high school football in Iowa so special. The Fields of Fall captures the emotional power of the game as it details the teams' journeys through a season of incredible highs and corresponding lows--and describes the sheer fun that everyone surrounding the game was having.
