In conjunction with the NFL’s 100th Season, Chris Willis of NFL Films,
discusses his latest book, a biography on Wheaton-native and Pro
Football Hall of Famer, Harold “Red” Grange. “Red Grange: The Life and
Legacy of the NFL’s First Superstar” tells the remarkable story of a
humble football player who rose to fame in the 1920s to become a
star and give credibility to the fledgling NFL.
This definitive biography reveals in intimate detail the life of a sports
pioneer. Whether as a player, coach, broadcaster, pitchman, Hall
of Famer, ambassador, or icon, Red Grange was, and still is, the
face of the early NFL and one of the greatest athletes of all-time.
