Along what had been country lanes rich with berries, high wire fences and mile-long factories stretched, and the yellow smoke of progress hung over all, fighting the sea winds' efforts to drive them off.

THE EIGHTY YARD RUN is the story of a high school football season in America. Over the course of twenty weeks and twenty towns, this book travels from summer practice through the regular season and onto a whole row of state championships that culminate in the Texas 5A state game in San Antonio's Alamodome. It discovers a world wreathed with those Friday night lights that offers up a miraculous spectacle of renewed hope and high drama in such far-flung locales as Hillsborough, North Carolina and Valentine, Nebraska and Sutter, California. But it also finds that the most binding halogen glare is only part of what makes this game so irrestible and so important to all those people who watch it, coach it, and play it, and who can't seem to quite get enough of the rectangular field, the oblong ball, and the young men who offer up their time, their energy, and at least a little bit of their hearts to make magic happen.
