Lou Holtz, former college football coach extraordinaire and now a commentator on ESPN, tells his life story. From beginnings that were well below humble in West Virginia, he recalls the poverty and broken family of his youth, his love for the game, his life as a coach, and his deep faith in God. While this may be what many expect from a sports autobiography, Holtz's presentation is striking. Afflicted by a speech impediment for most of his life, he gives a fine reading of his work. One is able to detect the impediment, yet it makes his sincere presentation all the more winsome. His presence comes through in a firm, understated way throughout this fine reading.
