KIRKUS REVIEW

Big Barney Bolt, amateur heavyweight boxer, goes out for college football. But in the main Barney is interested in Barney. After a year and a half of playing to the grandstands and earning small measure of esteem from his fellow students, Barney belatedly discovers that the good of the team matters more than making a fancy fraternity or playing for personal glory. In the big game, Barney plays to win for school and team. Good picture of an aggressive, rather unpleasant lad, turned into a social success. Well-sustained story with plenty of sports interest.
