Here is the college football experience as seen through the eyes of the young men who play the game. Sportswriter Ken Denlinger takes the reader on a fiver-year odyssey into the lives of one scholarship class and reveals their experiences at Penn State and in Coach Paterno's program.

Ken was given extraordinary access to the Penn State programs--starting with the recruiting process and then onto the field and in the locker room. He became friend and confidant to the players and found every plater had the same dream: to bring glory to himself and his school and then ascend to the NFL. In this gritty account, Ken sets moving stories of triumph against the stark realities of injury, disillusionment, and failure.

Here are the dreams, fears, and pressures facing young men who are exposed weekly to thousands of screaming fans. Here is a true picture of life in Division I college football. Anyone interested in Penn State, college football, or the larger issues or sports and society will find For the Glory an unforgettable experience.
