Summary
"Every year thousands of high school seniors across America dream of playing big-time college football. In For the Glory, Ken Denlinger takes the reader on a five-year odyssey into the lives of one scholarship class and reveals their experiences at Penn State and in Coach Joe Paterno's program."--BOOK JACKET. "Here is the college football experience as seen through the eyes of the young men who play the game. Ken Denlinger was given extraordinary access to the Penn State football program starting with the recruiting process and then onto the field and in the locker room. Over five years, Ken became a friend and confidant to twenty-eight scholarship players and one incredible walk-on. He found every player had the same dream: to become a college football hero and bring glory to himself and his school and then to ascend to the NFL. In this gritty account, Ken sets moving stories of triumph against the stark realities of injury, disillusionment, and failure."--BOOK JACKET
