Memoir gives readers an up-close look at history

        I have had the good fortune to work with an outstanding writer. Not just any writer, a sports writer. Craig Greenlee is deep, insightful and inspiring.
       This brother is a great read. He takes you there. You don’t have to wonder about what is going on – you know. Craig is quiet, soft-spoken, and reflective. If he puts “pen to paper” about something, it’s worth writing about. It’s worth knowing about.
       He takes you inside the aftermath of what was one of the most tragic events in the world of sports. The vintage photos and images in the video teasers leave you focused and seared with the weight of that time.
       What comes back to you is that the Marshall players are so full of life and expectations. For the coaches, the players, their parents, relatives, classmates, friends, and supporters, it began as a year of promise. It didn’t end that way.
       Don’t sleep on this one. A must read.

    It is an interesting story to be told by those who were left behind. I often wondered if you were at Marshall when this tragedy happened. I would love to hear your story and the others as well.

  4. Craig ..... Bill and I are soooo proud of you!
