“For more than half a century since the glory days of Billy Cannon, LSU football fans have gotten only pieces of his story. This book provides a detailed account of a celebrated athlete. It also offers something much bigger – the journey of a proud but wounded man who took a remarkable path and eventually ended up exactly where he wanted to be.”
