Advance praise for Fifth Quarter
"Fifth Quarter is the best book about football I’ve ever read–and Jennifer Allen never played a down in her life. But she was born to be a writer, she grew up around some of the greatest names in the NFL, and her father happened to be one of the greatest coaches in history. What a family this woman hails from!"
"What an extraordinary story! Within a terrifying, pathetic, and sometimes– inevitably–hilarious tale of professional football and her father’s life as a coach, Jennifer Allen shows everything that’s wrong–and right–about ‘sports-minded’ American men."
