Football's Stars of Summer: A History of the College All Star Football Game Series of 1934-1976

On August 31, 1934, the first College All-Star Football Game was played at Soldier Field in Chicago. This gridiron spectacular series, which continued until 1976, served as a major factor in the popularization and growth of professional football into its current position as the National Game of the United States. Football's Stars of Summer reviews each year of this classic series, including the excitement of selecting the college players; the frequent battles between the two sides over game rules; and the All-Stars' grueling pre-game training camps in the heat of summer, that often produced plenty of surprises for everyone. For all public and high school library collections.
