This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


All-American Washington State quarterback Ryan Leaf, who led the WSU Cougars to a Rose Bowl appearance in 1998, shares the ins and outs of a young man from Montana, attending college with dreams of a pro football career! It covers four years, from the moment Leaf decided to attend Washington State up through the Rose Bowl appearance in 1998. For college football fans and for WSU Cougar fans, this is an entertaining, behind-the-scenes journey through a fascinating time in the school s football history. For sports fans generally, it offers an unvarnished look at the world of college athletics, good and bad. The book does not glorify the sport or the WSU Cougar team, but does shed light on the powerful stories, colorful characters and some of the shenanigans behind one of our country s most beloved weekend pastimes.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 28, 2011 – Montana native Leaf made a splash as quarterback at Washington State University, where he would led the Cougars to the 1998 Rose Bowl. He engagingly recounts the events of individual games throughout his college career, while painting portraits of mentors, colleagues, and competitors. His cockiness at the time made him somewhat unlikable (such that folks for years to come would look at him "with fire in their eyes"), but he reminisces with honesty and courage. As he writes: "We were a collection of characters, some from the sticks and some from the big city. We were white and black, big and small, quiet and loud and everything in between. Above all, we were committed and loyal and determined." Passionate, hardworking, and above all focused, Leaf, with coauthor Witter, invites readers to relive those four years of exhilarating ups and somber downs that shaped a kid from the Palouse into the man he is today.
