Novels that involve football – go ?
Silver Linings Playbook
Playing for Pizza by John Grisham.
Bleachers by Grisham also
These are old…but when I was in 8th grade my teacher had us read the following books….maybe in an attempt to get more boys reading? Anyway, I loved them! 1) Instant Replay. 2) I am Third. 3) Jerry Kramer Farewell to Football. It made me love football!
Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk (or something like that)
Friday Night Lights
George and Lizzie starts when high school senior, Lizzie, decides to sleep with the entire high school football team starters. Probably not quite what you’re looking for. Lol
Not adult video. Not tonight.
It’s not graphic. It’s more of a mention, “The fullback smelled like xyz body wash.”
@Calli A walk down dirty memory lane.
Pat Conroy’s books have a lot of football in them.
Everybody’s All American by Frank Deford. Great movie, too with Jessica Lange and Dennis Quaid.
Playing for Pizza; Bleachers; both by John Grisham
If you are ever interested in nonfiction A League of Denial is fabulous!!! Concussion is also pretty good as well.
I do want to read one of those.
If you only read one, read A League of Denial.
North Dallas Forty – Peter Ghent
I just read an excerpt in The Greatest Football Stories Ever Told – Eric Noe, Ed.
“We was robbed” by any team that loses.
