The Courting of Marcus Dupree
Review: (Required): 

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.
