Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Recruited for his combination of size and speed, George Mills had the potential to become an outstanding college football player--but it never happened. A View from the Bench reveals the reality behind the glamour of college football and the tough experiences in the life of a benchwarmer. Mills was a solid player who loved the game, but he had only one chance in nearly five years at making Nebraska's starting team. He found little time or energy for academics after hours of drills, weight lifting, and team meetings. Now, with complete candor, Mills lays bare the true meaning of "student-athlete."
