About the Book
Across the state of Iowa there are towns where high school football is less a game and more a way of life. While bigger schools have their traditions, football is the heartbeat of the community in some of Iowa’s smaller towns; a center of activity; an object of intense passion for both the school and the community as a whole. In these football hotbeds, the game has been turned into an art form, young men who excel at it become local heroes, and winning is second nature—but never taken for granted.

Not only are the young men in these towns learning the game of football, they are being taught valuable life lessons that will pay dividends long after their playing days are over. By stressing core philosophies like teamwork, dedication, sacrifice, and discipline, coaches work to develop the character of their players first and foremost—and winning football games is the result.

The Fields of Fall follows several of the best known football dynasties in Iowa for an entire year. The book is an enlightening and entertaining ride through the 2010 season; dissecting the teams’ philosophies on football, education and life in general; and telling the stories of the people and the communities that make high school football in Iowa so special. The Fields of Fall captures the emotional power of the game as it details the teams’ journeys through a season of incredible highs and intense lows—and never loses sight of how much fun everyone is having.
