Bobby Bowden : : Win by Win
by Ray G. Schneider and Paul M. Pedersen and Ross Obley




Overview -
Bobby Bowden is a coaching treasure and legend. Across six decades at Howard College, West Virginia University, and Florida State University, Coach Bowden has won a total of 332 games and touched the lives of all those around him. With style and grace he has accumulated his victories, which during one stretch resulted in the unfathomable accomplishment of at least 10 wins a season for 15 consecutive years. Inside the pages of this book, readers will discover how Bowden won and what players he used to secure each of his coaching victories. From his first unnoticed conquest in 1959 through the last triumph attended by tens of thousands and covered by a media throng, this is the account of how he did it, win by win. Authors Ray G. Schneider and Paul M. Pedersen, both graduates of FSU’s Sport Management Ph.D. program, combine with photographer Ross Obley to showcase the career of “Saint Bobby.” Gene Deckerhoff, the radio voice of FSU football, prepared the foreword for this unique account of Coach Bobby Bowden’s career. With game-by-game detail and rare images, they provide a glimpse of one of the most storied, influential, and winning coaches in American college football history.
