by Harry Woods
In 1969, the last year of that tumultuous decade of change, a young football player receives an athletic scholarship to the University of Eastern Wyoming.
There, Saul Michaels, a good athlete and a better student, falls into a day-by-day pattern of classes, work, and football. The slow-paced school campus is an antithesis to the urban setting where Saul left his mother and brother.
He flourishes. As a freshman, Saul begins to stand out academically and athletically. It is all he could hope for, but there is a challenge ahead that will change his life forever.
Saul Michaels discovers who he is, and the transformation occurs when a boy athlete becomes a man.About the Author
