WHAT THE LEGENDS ARE SAYING:

Coach Greco

This is a belated thank you / Job well done!!  I am a St. Louis native who also had the privilege & opportunity to play football in high school, and THOROUGHLY enjoyed your two books.  I am considering getting an additional set as either a Christmas or birthday gift for a friend. Take care and have a great week!!

I really enjoyed your super books! ............ and to say the least I spent the better part of the weekend with my nose stuck in the pages.  I can’t imagine the time it must of taken to put the story together.  As a coach andproduct of the St Louis Football History I am proud that at one time I had the opportunity to learn many oflife's valuable lessons between the lines and under the watchful eyes of Coach Nordman.  One of my favorite quotes is a passage on Miche Stadium at West Point that reads;

 

"Upon the fields of friendly strife

Are sown the seeds

That, upon other fields, on other days

Will bear the fruits of victory."

GOA Douglas MacArthur

 

Your books reminded me of how true that passage is! Thanks Again for the trip down memory lane!

 I made a successful purchase! Thanks for your quick response and also for writing those two wonderful books about High School football in the St.Louis Metro area.  Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I received the books and have started perusing them.  They are excellent ... very detailed and steeped in stats ... you did a really nice job of capturing the history of a very important part of our community's fabric.  Great work!

Thanks,

Steve Stranghoener

 

Don-

What a great job! I seriously did not put the book down for a few hours the first time I got it. Nice going and congratulations.

Don, 

What a treasure!  I just read some of the books and they are awesome.  Some of the men I knew of, or had forgotten, or did not know of and enjoyed learning about their deeds.  As my old coach Ray Cliffe use to say "It's a great fraternity".  I can not believe you undertook a momentous task as that and did such a great job.  I cannot even imagine just the research………  Again, great, great job on the two books!  

Sincerely,

Bob Robidoux

 

Don,

 I received the books yesterday and have enjoyed them immensely. I will end up making loads of money on bar bets thanks to your efforts. I assume that you loaded a video production on to the Telegraph web site . Well done. The WMA alumni group is enjoying it.

Don,

I greatly appreciate what you have accomplished in writing "Legends of the Gridiron" and "The Legends Playbook". ….... we won the '56 and '58 (my sophomore and senior seasons) Big Six Conference titles.

Hello Don,

Thank you for sharing and publishing your information on St. Louis Metro Area H S Football through your two books, "The Legends Playbook" and "Legends of the Gridiron". Your books have so much information about each school's football history as well as the Public High League, local, state and national history that I will encourage each school to

invest in a set of books for its library. Your information will not only help to increase school spirit, but help each school with much needed information on the history of its various alumni.
