About this Item

Hard-to-find book by George Herbert Allen (1918-1990), then head football coach and professor of physical education at Whittier College, California. Brought to Chicago in 1958 by Bears' owner George Halas to scout the Rams, Allen won a full-time job as defensive coordinator and was also given charge of the Bears' college draft, in which he chose Mike Ditka, Gale Sayers, and Dick Butkus. He went on to become a Hall-of-Fame NFL head coach for both the Los Angeles Rams and the Washington Redskins. Attached to rear pastedown of this copy is a 1952 letter to Allen at Whittier from previous owner of this book Charles J. "Chuck" Spalten, on Arizona State College stationery, seeking help from Allen with Spalten's thesis (which later became a book of his own) on football scouting. We offer copies of Spalten's book, separately. 111 pp. Reduced from $120. Bookseller Inventory # 004848
