A Football Story
Peter F. Lester
A Football Story examines the journey of Mike Wolf from the gridiron at Western Kansas University, where he was a student and an outstanding football player, to the college lectern at that university, where he reinvents himself as a talented assistant professor in computer engineering. Despite academic demands, he is drawn back into football as a member of the university athletics board. Only a few months into his appointment, a serious cheating episode carried out by members of the football team drives Mike to find a way to right the wrongs that contaminate the sport. The journey is complex. His personal experiences go beyond intellectual challenges to violent attacks protesting his efforts to clean up football. Even he couldn’t have anticipated the final impact of his efforts.
