This is a true story written by Matt Frantz, a Buckeye kicker from 1985-1987. I actually heard the story from a client I met in Boston, who lived in Cincinnati and frequented the steakhouse where Matt now works and became friends with him. When he found out I was a Buckeye, this book arrived at my doorstep with a nice note from Matt. After reading it, I was a bit embarrassed, as a Buckeye, that I was not familiar with the story. But what an inspirational read. And not just for Buckeye fans either. Anyone who wants to hear a story about someone who refused to give up, this is your kind of book.
