Synopsis: An autobiography by legendary Brownwood coach Gordon Wood. An inspirational tale about a dirt poor farm boy who never played a down of football in high school and how he became the winningest football coach of all time. Coach Wood's first head coaching job was at Rule High School in 1940. His coaching journey included stops at Roscoe, Seminole, Winters, Stamford and Victoria before he landed at Brownwood High in 1960. Gordon Wood's coaching record includes nine state football championships and three hundred and ninety-six victories. This is the life story of the winningest football coach in history - an exhilarating read, full of humor, love and perseverance.
