Extending back to the first published report of a game from 1873 to the present, this book presents high school football in a manner never done before. One of the many stories featured recounts how the late Charlie Wedemeyer, former coach at Los Gatos High who suffered from ALS, called plays by having his wife read his lips and then give the plays to assistant coach Butch Cattolico. Cal-Hi Sports editor Mark Tennis mixes amazing anecdotes and interviews with the many who've experienced California high school football from every imaginable angle.
