I am pleased to announce my new book Hut! Hut! Hike! A History of Football Terminology is available on Amazon and will make a great holiday gift for you and others.
Hut! Hut! Hike! explores the history of football terminology by examining when and why more than 400 familiar words and expressions entered the game. By linking the game’s evolution to changes in its language, readers learn the origins of first string, basic fundamentals, X’s and O’s, long snapper, and hundreds more terms used in every football conversation or broadcast. In addition, you will learn which change in the game led to dropback and handoff becoming popular, and why the names for many defensive player positions emerged in the 1950s and 1960s.
Organized in easy-to-read, bite-size chunks and filled with period images and illustrations, Hut! Hut! Hike! tells football’s history one word at a time.
