The 20th century was the defining era of high school football, and during that time a select group of programs across the country solidified their reputations as the nation s greatest. These programs with legendary coaches like Paul Brown, Wright Bazemore, Gerry Faust, and Bob Ladouceur produced national championship teams at schools with names like Massillon, Valdosta, Moeller, and De La Salle.
But which of these teams was the greatest?
"All the Way to #1" is the first book to thoroughly document the nation s top high school football teams from the 20th century. Identifying seventeen legendary programs, football historian Timothy Hudak tells the exciting and entertaining stories of how these teams came to prominence on the national stage. Fans will be particularly interested in Hudak s conclusion about which of these teams was the best.
Filled with 330 black and white photos, statistics, and the most comprehensive listing of the 20th century s high school football champions found anywhere, "All the Way to #1" is a one-of-a-kind book that will be perfect for fans across the country."
