Never before, never again : the stirring autobiography of Eddie Robinson, the winningest coach in the history of college football by Eddie Robinson( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Franklin Roosevelt was America's President when Eddie Robinson coached his first game. Fifty-seven years later, Robison left Grambling as the winningest coach in the history of college football. Initially a coach for a segregated society, Eddie Robinson has helped football transcend race in the America he loves and treasures. Yet institutionalized racial barriers kept Robinson a secret from white America for more than 25 years until Howard Cosell did an ABC special on Grambling in the late 1960s. Outside of the world of sport, white America still barely knows him. In the African-American community, he is very likely the best-known coach in America. He is surely the most beloved. Never Before, Never Again chronicles Coach Robinson's life and his time at Grambling in vivid detail. He overcame all those things that might have predicted that it was not possible for the son of a sharecropper and a domestic worker to become a success. He got a master's degree, became the president of the American Football Coaches Association, and helping thousands of young boys become outstanding men. More than wins, they may be his greatest legacy. But as much as Coach Robinson's memoir is about sports, it's a social history as well. The book is a lens through which readers can see the challenges and turmoil of the civil rights movements from the perspective of a sports figure who worked the playing fields of a black campus while caring deeply about the stakes and outcome of the struggle. This book places the hard-news events of the day in the time frame of the trails of Robinson's Grambling teams of that era. Also included are the thoughts of other coaches (both college and NFL) on Coach Robinson, as well as those of national leaders like Reverend Jesse Jackson, M.J. "Mike" Foster, the governor of Louisiana, and President Clinton. Never Before, Never Again stands as lasting testimony to the work of a true American hero

Pass to play : student athletes and academics by Richard Edward Lapchick( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph focuses on the virtually ignored issues of the academic problems of high school athletes. All the problems of college sport exist at the high school level. For example, "redshirting" occurs when a school has an athlete sit out a year so that the athlete can mature physically and have four years of eligiblity. This problem exists in the secondary grades as well as in colleges. The ramifications of the National Collegiate Athletic Association's Proposition 48 are discussed as they have an impact on students at both high school and college level. The legal aspects of "No Pass No Play" policies in Texas and other areas are discussed. Recommendations are made for higher academic requirements for talented student athletes. Current state academic requirements for athletes are listed and references are included. (Jd)
