Sobre o livro
The history of UCLA football is a continuous story of highs and lows, ups and downs. Every year from 1919 through today, UCLA has fielded a team, and though the expectations have changed through the years, the goals have not. The single greatest goal in sports is to win your next game. When a team strings enough wins together, a magical season is born.
InUCLA Football Encyclopedia: From Tears to Touchdowns, you will read about the magical seasons, as well as the not-so-magical seasons. You will read about UCLA coaches, and the players who have left a lasting legacy. You will read about the wins, the losses, the individual and team records, the assistant coaches, and the players that built the foundation of the program. Moments long forgotten will be brought back to memory, and as you read one year after the next, you will be able to see the history of UCLA football for what it really is- a story spanning generations with a defined beginning, but no defined ending.
The story of UCLA football is often a story of "almost," and in this book, you will read about the times UCLA simply refused to settle for "almost." You will read about Fred Cozens and Red Sanders. You will read about Tommy Prothro and Jim Mora. You will learn about the upbringing of Don Moomaw and that of Maurice Jones-Drew. This book is the most extensive book ever written on UCLA football and is a must-read for every UCLA football fan nationwide.
