Jimbo, as he was known by as a kid, had one clearly defined goal when he was a kid growing up in Texas, and that was to play college football. His dream came crashing to an end on his last tackle at age 15. Jim tells his emotional story of a football accident that forever changed his life and his fight for survival. The author vividly describes the accident and what he was going through mentally and his challenges with people's perceptions of what it means to be a person who uses a wheelchair. He would not let his disability define his outcome or who he was as a person.
In The Boys from Old Florida, Buddy Martin takes the reader beneath the surface of Florida football as, without bias or sugar coating, he skillfully excavates the truths behind "The Gator Nation." In this book, Martin, a Florida native, has chronicled the real stories of Gator coaches and players through their own eyes and in their words over a 55-year period since 1950 -- and not all are valentines. The school asked all but one of the coaches interviewed to leave or move up. Some players became estranged or never really felt appreciated. Yet, others are forever grateful for their experience as Gator players and feel a sense of brotherhood. Liberating moments such as the arrival of Ray Graves come to life through the words of somebody who experienced it firsthand. Martin's fresh investigations have bolstered his sharp memory of those moments as they unfolded, including Graves's firing after a fairy tale season with his "Super Sophs."
