Riding The Storm Out
A Year of Inner City High School Football


“If you like high school football, if you like rooting for the underdog, if you like stories of faith, tenacity and hope against all odds ? then you will love this book”

“A modern day Rocky like story.”

“Great book. I really started pulling for these kids.”

Very enjoyable read. Well worth the money.”

Follow the 2008 St. Louis, MO Roosevelt High School Roughriders football team through one unforgettable year of Friday Night Lights - Ghetto style. This book is full of unforgettable characters: Coaches who tilt at one bureaucratic windmill after another, a Principal who takes back the school hallways from neighborhood gang members, young Athletes who never stop dreaming of life beyond the grim reality of their home turf. The reader will be inspired one minute, outraged the next; all the while traversing a path on a journey led by visionary adults and courageous athletes fighting for daily survival in a school system some call the most deficient in the nation.

“For anyone with a soft spot for the underdog, the Roosevelt Roughriders were a story begging to be told.”

“Labor Activist Marshall Ganz said that young people have an almost biological destiny to dream. Ganz’s wisdom rang true at Roosevelt High School. The optimism found among its’ students is uplifting to the very core of mankind’s soul, the human spirit.”
