Description - The Greatest Texas Sports Stories You'Ve Never Heard by Al Pickett

The longest field goal in the history of football was kicked in Texas. But did you know it was love that first led a Swedish soccer player to Texas, where he still lives more than thirty years after his record-setting 69-yard field goal? That story is just one of dozens of unusual and behind-the-scenes stories veteran sports writer and broad-caster Al Pickett has compiled in more than twenty years of covering sports in Texas. Did you know that a tragedy on that same day that Ove Johansson kicked his record field goal changed University of Houston coach Art Briles' life forever? Did you know the greatest high school football coach in Texas history never played high school football himself? Or a case of deja vu helped a Texan win the Masters golf championship? After each chapter of "The Greatest Texas Sports Stories You've Never Heard", sports fans in the Lone Star State are certain to say, "I didn't know that."
