SON OF THE COACH by Philip Harkins


Email this review


By the author of the top-rate Knt, this is the story of the inevitable emotional clashes when son plays for father and for the team at the same time. When Gil Hunt, made varsity his sophomore year at college, found that while he had played football for the fun of it, his father, coach of the varsity, plays to win. When the Kingston eleven cut short their string of victories, a showdown comes in which Mr. Hunt becomes aware of the destructive, icily efficient methods he has been using to win. Then Gil begins to work for both his father and the team as one with happy results. Good football, but more important real characters and emotional impact.
