Like most boys growing up in Michigan in the early 1900s, George Gipp enjoyed playing sports. But even as a small boy, his athletic skills set him apart from the others. When he is awarded a baseball scholarship to the University of Notre Dame, his future seems set. An afternoon's horseplay with a football, however, brings George to the attention of assistant football coach Knute Rockne, and Notre Dame football is transformed forever. Setting records and winning fan's hearts, George seems unstoppable but cruel fate intervenes. Now, for every young reader who has ever wondered about the phrase "Win one for the Gipper," comes the inspiring story of the legendary George Gipp.
