Large 9" x 11", 252 page hardcover with dustjacket titled NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED: JACKIE SHERRILL AND TEXAS A&M'S 12th MAN KICKOFF TEAM by Caleb Pirtle III/ Dockery House Publishing, ISBN # 978-0-9626682-03, First Edition, copyright 2008/ The story of the 12th man kickoff team is one of personal triumph and occasional tragedy. Some memories and recollections have dimmed with the years. Others remain as vibrant as the day they occurred. And the complexity of the truth lies deep within the woven layers of fact. Perception so often is founded on truth that has been colored by layers of high anxiety and high excitement that people recall or choose to recall. For them, life was at its pinnacle. They were playing football, college football, big-time football, Texas A&M football. The truth for others may have suffered from the dismay of a few bad days, hard times, bruises, and disappointment. Neither is necessarily right, and neither is necessarily wrong. It just happens to be the way it is - and the way it was. Jackie Sherrill reached into a bunch of unknowns and plucked a few who would forever form the backbone of a legacy. The story of the 12th man kickoff team is one of personal triumph and occasional tragedy. Some memories and recollections have dimmed with the years. Others remain as vibrant as the day they occurred. And the complexity of the truth lies deep within the woven layers of fact. Perception so often is founded on truth that has been colored by layers of high anxiety and high excitement that people recall or choose to recall. For them, life was at its pinnacle. They were playing football, college football, big-time football, Texas A&M football. The truth for others may have suffered from the dismay of a few bad days, hard times, bruises, and disappointment. Neither is necessarily right, and neither is necessarily wrong. It just happens to be the way it is - and the way it was. He gave them a chance when no one else would. And they were forever indebted. None of them ever really knew Sherrill. None of them ever had many if any conversations with Sherrill. As one said, I can count every word I ever spoke to Coach Sherrill on one finger. They feared him. They respected him. They became his disciples. He taught them the game. He taught them about life. He taught them how to be better than any of them thought they could be. He made a difference. Then. And now. Their day in the sun was a magical time. They were the little engine that could in a world that said they couldn t. They were the student body. They were Texas A&M. They were the 12th Man.

The book is complete and in EXCELLENT condition with some overall light wear mainly to the dustjacket. The book is signed "To Fred '56, Best Wishes, Jackie Sherrill, Gig 'Em" on the front free endpaper. There is also another signature on the inside of the front cover, but I can't decipher who it is.
