A memoir written by a former teammate who knew most of the people who died in the tragic 1970 plane crash that nearly wiped out Marshall University's football team. Moviegoers loved the film "We Are Marshall," but the Silver Screen version doesn't tell the whole story. Go to the Amazon.com website, read the reviews, and you'll discover that this is a story whose time has finally come. Author's email: email@example.com
I have had the pleasure of crossing paths with Craig Greenlee many times. He has been a longtime contributor to the Winston-Salem Journal (NC) sports pages. I spent 20 years in the WXII-TV sports department in Winston-Salem.
Usually, I’d see Craig at high school football or basketball games. Occasionally, I’d run into him at college games. But it wasn’t until a few years ago that I learned that Craig had been a member of Marshall University’s football team – the year before the plane crash and the year after.
I immediately told him, “You should write a book.” He told me he was already hard at work on one.
That book – November Ever After – is finally finished, and available.
We often put ourselves in the position of “What if?”
Well, Craig has lived with that “What if?” for over 40 years.
I can’t wait to read it.
