Illinois Grange Red - Red Grange and the Rise of Modern Football (Sport and Society)
Red Grange and the Rise of Modern Football (Sport and Society)

Before the Super Bowl, before "Monday Night Football," even before the NFL, there was Red Grange. Catapulted into the public eye in 1924 by scoring four touchdowns in twelve minutes for the University of Illinois, the "Galloping Ghost" went on to a trailblazing career as a professional player, Hollywood football idol, and broadcaster. He ranked with Babe Ruth and Jack Dempsey in the 1920s as the most heralded figures in America's "golden age of sport," and when Sports Illustrated did a special issue in 1991 on the greatest moments in sports, Grange was selected for the cover.   Grange's star rose in tandem with that of the sport itself. His spectacular performance as a college player coincided with football's evolution into a rallying point of university life, undergirded by post-World War I money, cars, roads, stadiums, and mass media. With a natural talent and down-home image that helped legitimize professional football, Grange became one of the first athlete-heroes and the first major sports figure to serve as a play-by-play broadcast commentator.   John Carroll depicts the career of this softspoken pioneer who helped lift pro football above its reputation as "a dirty little business run by rogues and bargain-basement entrepreneurs." A reluctant celebrity and folk hero, Red ...

The Ghosts of Wheaton: How the 'Red Grange' Tigers Conquered Illinois High School Football

John Thorne, who coached the Tigers of Wheaton Warrenville South/Wheaton Central High School for 22 years once said, "Football is so much like life: you get knocked down, you suffer devastating losses, you make huge mistakes, but you have to get right back up. You have no choice."Thorne's Tigers followed that script for many years before emerging as one of Illinois' preeminent high school football programs in the 1990s ultimately producing more than 80 Division I college athletes, as well as nearly 90 Division II and Division III athletes and a handful of All-Americans and NFL players along the way – not to mention seven state championships.The Ghosts of Wheaton is the story of how champions are made. With play-by-play detail, author Thom Wilder chronicles not only the games but the players, their struggles, their strengths, and their leadership in their quest to rekindle the gridiron greatness of Red Grange.

Grange Red Illinois - The Red Grange Story: An Autobiography, as told to Ira Morton
The Red Grange Story: An Autobiography, as told to Ira Morton

Red Grange stood with Babe Ruth and Jack Dempsey in the 1920s as the most heralded figures in America's "Golden Age of Sport." Grantland Rice immortalized Grange in rhyme as "The Galloping Ghost" and named him and Jim Thorpe the halfbacks on his all-time college team. In 1991, when Sports Illustrated published its first special issue celebrating "yesterday's heroes," Red Grange, "An Original Superstar," was featured on the cover.A three-time All-American at the University of Illinois in 1923-25, Grange scored 31 touchdowns and ran for 3,637 yards in three eight-game seasons. In 1924 he gave what many consider to be the greatest single-game performance in the history of college football. Playing before 67,000 fans on the dedication day of Illinois' new Memorial Stadium, Grange scored four touchdowns in the first twelve minutes of play, ran for a fifth touchdown in the third quarter, and passed for a sixth touchdown in the final period.When Grange joined the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving Day 1925, five days after his last college game, it marked the turning point for professional football. His enormous popularity and drawing power became the force that was to transform the NFL into a major sports attraction.This is the first paperback edition of Grange's autobiography, originally p...
