From the Publisher:
A vivid account of the record-making NFL quarterback's stellar career moves beyond his mythological persona to reveal how he revolutionized the position and established a foundation for today's professional quarterbacks, sharing insights into his personal life to reveal the inspirations for many of his achievements. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.

A powerful biography of one of the greatest football players of all time, in the spirit of Namath and Johnny U

 

No quarterback in the history of the NFL can match Bart Starr's record of achievement. In an unprecedented seven-season run from 1961?67, Starr led the Green Bay Packers to five NFL championships and the first two Super Bowl titles, while revolutionizing the position and laying the foundation for the quarterbacks of today. Yet until now this quiet man's remarkable career has often been obscured by the Lombardi mystique.

 

Acclaimed author Keith Dunnavant brings Starr's dramatic journey to life in vivid detail, sketching the definitive portrait of an iconic figure who defined the quarterback position during the 1960s, when professional football stormed out of the shadows to capture the nation's imagination.  A remarkable blend of personal memory and historical narrative, Bart Starr is a compelling biography of an American hero and the perfect companion to the classic When Pride Still Mattered.
