Inhaltsangabe: Across Many Fields captures the essence of Ohio football by chronicling the 2001 high school season with a lively combination of pictures and insights. This book observes high school football less as a sport and more as a cultural event through which a wide variety of people take meaning.
Last fall, writer Christopher Butler and photographer Jennifer Rothchild traveled across Ohio, visited schools in all six high school divisions, and observed big-city and small-town teams. All told, they watched 45 games in 15 weeks, and conducted nearly 150 interviews. The book takes readers from first-game expectations, through mid-season highs and lows, and ends with the two-day, six-game championship weekend that dominates state news headlines every first weekend in December.
The 160-page hardback book is driven mainly by the 261 full-color and black and white photos which capture players, coaches, referees, bands, cheerleaders, teachers, parents, pep clubs, trainers, and paramedics.
ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit, former quarterback at Centerville High School and Ohio State University, provides the foreword for the book as well.
Umschlagtext: Tonight, you have a mission, a personal one. You want to learn why Ohio high school football is, beyond dispute, tops in the country. You want to get at the scratch beneath the contest, to uncover the patterns and motivations that bring us out, faithfully, every weekend, to scream ourselves hoarse, to endure bone-chilling rains and frozen aluminum benches, to donate our time, effort, and money, to freely give our emotions over to the performances of 16- and 17-year-old kids, and to promise to do it all over again next week and next year and the year after that. Yes, you've heard arguments on behalf of other states- Pennsylvania, Texas, Florida, California- but you know there's no state where high school football forms a more vibrant part of its culture. Maybe this sounds crazy to you, and maybe it doesn't, but one thing is for sure: It's an Ohio thing; people in the Buckeye state understand; and everyone's welcome.
