A young law graduate of the University of Pennsylvania assumed the unpaid position as coach of Oberlin College's football squad in October 1892. This "bespectacled, stoop-shouldered" young-man, as he was described by one player who saw him on his first day of coaching, was John Heisman. Brandt traces the origins of football at this renowned academic institution and the success of its students on and off the playing field, regaling readers with the stories of the fans, the players, the heroes, the rivals.
