Fred Steinmark was such a player. Award-winning author Jim Dent chronicles the life of Steinmark, a brave young man who died far too young. COURAGE BEYOND THE GAME is a book that will remind many who despair at the current state of college football that the game still has much to love. Freddie Steinmark was a Colorado high school football player deemed too slow and too small for major college football. He proved the skeptics wrong and became a starting safety at the University of Texas, a perennial college football powerhouse.

Jim Dent, the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of The Junction Boys, returns with a powerful Texas story which transcends college football, displaying the courage and determination of one of the game's most valiant players.

Freddie Steinmark was a small but scrappy young man when he arrived at the University of Texas in 1967. A tenacious competitor, Freddie became UT's star safety by the start of the 1969 season, but he'd also developed a crippling pain in his thigh. Freddie continued to play, helping the Longhorns to rip through opponents like pulpwood. His final game was for the 1969 national championship, when the Longhorns rallied to beat Arkansas in a legendary game that has become known as "the Game of the Century."

Tragically, bone cancer took Freddie off the field when nothing else could. But nothing could extinguish his irrepressible spirit or keep him away from the game. Today, a photo of Freddie hangs in the tunnel at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, where players touch it before games en route to the field. With this moving story, a Brian's Song for college football, Jim Dent once again brings readers to cheers and tears with a truly American tale of bravery in the face of the worst odds.

I have to disclose that I played football in high school in Texas in the late 60s and was a fan of the Texas Longhorns. As a result, I knew about Freddy Steinmark's illness and the success of that team. However, I wasn't that familiar with his character or with the intricacies of the UT program. Dent has done an incredible job in describing both and drawing the reader in to that world. I highly recommend this book.

This is an amazing book about an amazing young man that died way too soon. I first heard about him when I was 10 and have always been a fan of Freddie Steinmark.
I wrote about him on my blog at http://collegefootballcrazy.com/nfl-draft-top-5-at-each-position/

Some book reviews claim the Author Jim Dent portrays Freddie Steinmark like he's a god, but that is not true at all. Great Book

Freddie Steinmark was an incredibly tough individual. Having played on an opposing team during Freddie's career I was somewhat knowledgeable of his challenges. I recall very vividly the "Game of the Century" that he played against Arkansas. I heard with anguish of his cancer shortly after the game and how he tried so hard to compete in the game. This book has a great insight into Freddie's life and how he overcame the odds to start on a national championship team. The latter part of the book is a tough read as it will really test your emotions. Freddie was a true winner. I recommend this book to anyone who recalls the the old Southwest Conference days

The author went back and did a lot more research; he talked to a number of people in recent years , and thus there is the added perspective of investigative hindsight in this book. I found it better than I would have thought, and very honest, not just a "tribute to a hero" kind of book. Intelligent and well-researched, rather than a fawning fluff kind of book.

Courage Beyond the Game is essentially a story about an undersized kid who was nevertheless a standout on the football and baseball fields, as well as in the classroom...and who was known for his sunny attitude and perseverance in the face of pain.

It's a moving and inspirational story...and very well written. But, I think it was a stretch to make this into a full length book. The first half is a play by play of Steinmark's high school and college athletic career...and I'm talking game by game by game until they all started to run together. It was a bit much for me and I got bored. The story of Freddie's battle with bone cancer was much more compelling reading, but unfortunately didn't begin until the second half of the book. Freddie's story is certainly worth reading about, but you can probably find what you need by Googling him.

An inspiring book about an exceptional young man who played football. It is a very enjoyable read.

The Freddie Steinmark was a great book to read, and a hard book to read. Jim Dent tells the story of the too-small, all-heart safety of the 1969 Texas Longhorns who played an entire season with a tumor in his leg. Refusing to tell anyone about his pain, doing all that he could to stay on the field, Steinmark's courage is the stuff of legend. No one ever had more heart than Freddie Steinmark. By the end of the book, you'll be crying every chapter, just as the remembrance of Steinmark some 40 years later by those who knew him brought tears to nearly everyone who knew him.
Good book and a amazing story about an amazing young man.
