The Courting of Marcus Dupree

[Longhorn Review] The Courting of Marcus Dupree

Material Type: All, books — Tags: athletics, biography, civil rights, football, Mississippi — Posted on November 17, 2008, 11:04 am

By: Morris, Willie

One of many fine books by this quasi-native son, The Courting of Marcus Dupree
chronicles the feverish college recruitment of a promising high school football
player in the early ‘80s. Willie Morris, an editor of the Daily Texan in the 50’s,
after a stint in The Big Apple returned home to Mississippi and found this story
there. It’s more than the story of a high school football star and his family
working their way through the tangle of possibilities and promises offered in the
recruitment process. It’s a look into the soul of this town where twenty years
before three young civil rights workers had been murdered.

Favre

[Longhorn Review] Favre

Material Type: All, books — Tags: autobiography, favre, football — Posted on December 3, 2008, 11:44 pm

By: Brett Favre and Bonita Favre with Chris Havel

This autobiography of Brett Favre is heartwarming. When you read on what he has
gone through in his life and the challenges he has faced, it's just unreal how
badass of a football player he is. He's played sick, hurt, cold, hot. He's
incredible. My biggest role model in life. I would highly recommend this
book.
