Football Legends Series (1997)

From the book description: “Mooney offers a straightforward account of Favre's football career. Part of the Football Legends series, Brett Favre opens with information about Favre's family (his father was his first coach, and his brother was one of the first athletes that he looked up to) and continues chronologically into his high-school and college football days. However, the focus is on Favre's professional sports career, with detailed accounts of yards run and passes thrown. His family history and determination are what got him named MVP in 1995 and made him the quarterback to take the Green Bay Packers to victory in the 1997 Super Bowl. A Brett Favre chronology, a statistics sheet up to 1996, and an index of names close the book. This is a good choice for fans of Favre, the Green Bay Packers, or football in general.”

Another “geared for kids” book like the Favre version, this volume on head coach Vince Lombardi acquaints children with the greatest pro football coach of all time. Giving an overview of his life, it covers all of his years of success in Green Bay, and later with the Redskins in Washington, D.C.
