Old-School Football and Faith: Played Out on the Flats makes its way down the field of author Frank Sexton’s life, telling how his longtime commitment to baseball and football led him to appreciate God’s work in his life. After excelling in both sports in high school, he withstood the setback of injuries that closed the doors on his dream of playing football for the University of Tennessee. Thanks to his standout work in the City-County All Star Game in Knoxville, Tennessee, however, he received an offer to play under Coach Bobby Dodd at Georgia Tech.

Weaving together inspiring passages from the Scriptures with accounts of the hard work demanded of football players in the era of limited substitution when athletes played both offense and defense, Old-School Football and Faith relates the highlights of Sexton’s playing days from 1959 to 1963 and of his journey to a deeper faith.

Whether you are an aficionado of college football in general or an amateur historian of the Bobby Dodd era at Georgia Tech in particular, this memoir offers the story of how God’s hand guides a young athlete through adversity to a deeper faith in Jesus Christ.
