Yellow Jacket football in hard times and good by Raymond J Golarz( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Golarz introduces us to a team of young semi-pro Polish football players, along with their friends, families, ethnic customs, and religious ways. He draws us into a community struggling to survive the Depression's challenges and maintain their unique identity in this newly-adopted country. This account has it all: football games filled with action, emotion, strategizing, and gritty determination. And like those who actually came to see the games, you will find it delightfully easy to walk along with family and friends, coming from all over their neighborhood, to stand or take a seat on a make-shift bench
When the Yellow Jackets played by Raymond J Golarz( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Golarz retells the stories told to him by his father about a semi-pro football team in Lake County, Indiana: about about how an American game captured the hearts of a group of mean, immigrant street kids and gave them some of the rules by which to live. How, on another level, they were supported and immersed in a depression community whose own rules and ways of loving complemented the game they played in ways that even they didn't always understand. And how he came to understand the depth of feeling these individual young men had for their families, neighbors, teammates
