Our Boys: A Perfect Season on the Plains with the Smith Center Redmen



Heart. Commitment. Character. That is what Roger Barta had always preached to his high school football teams in Smith Center, Kansas (pop. 1,610). Coach Barta always says that when you take care of the little things, winning takes care of itself. For four consecutive years, the Smith Center Redmen had not lost a game. Winning, it seemed, had taken care of itself. But a 5th year of loss-free football would bring challenges that the Redmen had never faced. Joe Drape follows the trials and tribulations of the Redmen as they pursue a “Perfect Season on the Plains”.

    Nice idea. You should keep posting good books on sports for kids. Everyone on this site loves to read, particularly sports books.

    I loved this book. The Barta offense –the old school wishbone–is solid.
