In the midst of violent racial tensions in Birmingham, Alabama, new football coach Tandy Gerelds was struggling to create a winning football team at Woodlawn High School-- one of the last schools in Birmingham to integrate. The team did not have the caliber of players he needed to win-- until he saw Tony Nathan run. Tony was African American, and putting him in would be like drawing a target on both their backs. But Gerelds knew his decision was about more than football-- it was about doing what was right for the school... and the city.
"The true story of high school football coach Tandy Gerelds, a star running back, and the healing of a city"--Page 4 of cover.
