Run to Daylight Author:Vince Lombardi, W.C. Heinz, Robert Riger Only Vince Lombardi, the fiery, dynamic leader of the champion Green Bay Packers, could have written this explosively revealing book about America's most exciting sport. For only an insider with his special knowledge of the game ? and his astonishing winning record ? knows what it's really like to guide a team of world champions through the grue... more »ling schedule of a professional football season.
Pro football is a thinly-disguised form of warfare, and that's the way Lombardi sees it and plays it. Part of warfare is planning and every team ? winner or loser ? has to practice for the bruising battles that erupt every Sunday on gridirons across the country.
That's what this book is about. Through the eyes of Vince Lombardi we're given a rare glimpse of the way a top coach prepares his warriors for weekly conflict with the enemy. It's all here ? the players, the coaches, the strategy sessions, the tension, the pitch of excitement as the game nears, and finally the game itself, when the plan is put to the test of real combat.
A sports book that's really different, RUN TO DAYLIGHT by Vince Lombardi is MUST reading for every fan and student of the game.« less
