"The 1939 Texas Aggies" by Mickey Herskowitz
The 1939 Texas Aggies details the incredible story of the 1939 national football champions, the Texas A&M Aggies. From a program on the verge of being eliminated in 1934, award-winning sports writer Mickey Herskowitz describes the stunning climb to the national championship the Aggies experienced in 1939, with a near repeat in 1940. Led by a former baseball player, Homer Norton, the Texas Aggies recruited a remarkable collection of young men, including John Kimbrough, Marion Pugh, Marshall Foch Robnett, and Tommie Vaughn. Under Norton's leadership, he forged a collection of boys into a team of young men still revered in Aggieland. This masterful story of the national champions includes a game-by-game account of the 1939 and 1940 seasons, player bios, rare photographs, and interviews with members of the team. This book is a must have for all Texas Aggie football fans.
