Library Journal awards Stagg vs. Yost with coveted 'starred' review

Library Journal has awarded Stagg vs. Yost: The Birth of Cutthroat Football a "starred" review.

In an August feature preview fall football books, the respected and widely read magazine within the book industry gave a starred review to only one other of nine new books on football. 

Books that did not receive starred reviews include the coming unauthorized Nick Saban biography, a biography on Junior Seau by a senior Sports Illustrated writer, and a book on college football finances by a former Pulitzer Prize winner.

Library Journal calls John Kryk's new book "essential reading for those interested in the early history of college football." For more on LJ's review, click here.

Stagg vs. Yost (from Rowman & Littlefield) went on sale in July.
