The ten running backs profiled in this text each have left their mark on the sport of football. Not all have won major awards but these are ten of the greatest running backs to have played football.
Each of the ten running backs, past and present, who are profiled in this text each is known for their own style but each has made their mark on the sport of football. They demonstrate lightning-quick moves, speed, tenacity or power. Each was a record setter during their career.
The players profiled include Jerome bettis,, Jim Brown, Eric Dickerson,, Tony Dorsett, Franco Harris, Curtis Martin, Walter Payton, Barry Sanders, Emmitt Smith, and Ladainian Tomlinson. Each player is treated in a four page chapter. It includes a full page photo, statistics, and the playing style with brief highlights of their career.
Included are brief chapter notes, very limited sources for further information and a simple index.
Boys will gobble this up. It is brief and to the point with very short chapters, photos and the statistics boys love. A guaranteed hit with grades 4 up. Theal, Joan
