About this title


Set in the tension-filled Deep South in the 1960's, "Made or Broken" follows a group of young men on their experiences at the notorious Graves Springs football camp.Lightle vividly describes how players came to endure the two weeks of humiliation and abuse in the rich swampland of Southwest Georgia through mutual support and comraderie.

From the Publisher:

The recent release of Hollywood’s latest high school football movie, "Friday Night Lights" starring Billy Bob Thorton, prompted the New York Times to report on the protests of residents of Odessa, Texas. They expressed anger over the book’s negative portrayal of their town as obsessed and football-crazed.

The film exposes the seedy underbelly of high school football programs, which use and abuse their players for the glory of corrupt coaches and misguided fathers. This story is a staple of Hollywood movie making, but are there positive aspects of high school football that are not being portrayed? Do demanding coaches and arduous training sessions create powerful life lessons that players can take beyond the football field?
