"There's high school football- then, there's REAL high school football. Newark Catholic embraces what high school football embodies. I've been a huge fan of the program for many years and Bill's book shows what it takes to make a championship program and the dedication that's required to be #1." George Lehner Sports Director 610 WTVN Radio, Columbus, Ohio

"Outstanding! I was captivated with each chapter and lost a lot of sleep reading late into the night." -Joe Bell New Albany, Oh

"I've never read a book that was so graphic with it's descriptions of each football play. It should certainly be a help to those who may not understand the sport of football." -Frances Keck Newark, Oh

"Inspirational. I felt like I was there watching the games and it made me want to stand up and cheer for the team." -Donna Fleig Leetsdale, PA

"The book does an excellent job of capturing Coach Graham's language and tone. I couldn't put it down and was often up reading until 2 a.m." -Tim McKenna Newark, Ohio

"Growing Up Green is a very pleasurable trip through Americana. The game to game replay is very detailed and the insights into the coaches and players is superb. It's football's answer to "Hoosiers!" -Robert Greismer Concord, Ohio

"The book was fantastic! I was laughing uncontrollably and my wife was wondering what was wrong with me." -Albert Ghiloni Newark, Ohio

"This is a must read for all fans of the old Licking County League. It brought back many great memories. Bill shows his great love for Newark Catholic and Newark Catholic football." -Wes Poth Assistant Varsity Football Coach, Newark Catholic High School

Great book for anyone who grew up loving High School Football.

Evans does a great job of sharing his memories (and those of his teammates) about the 1985 season.

I was a freshmen at Newark Catholic that year and I can remember specific incidents very well (especially the stink bombs).

But Evans does more than just share his memories- he lets the reader experience a little bit of what it must have been like to play high school football in a small town in Ohio, to win a state championship, to play for the legendary J.D. Graham, to reach a life-long goal.

I'll remember my days at NC fondly and I will never forget the magic that J.D. Graham worked with average kids. Though I never played football for the man, he probably impacted me more than any other high school teacher I did have (with the exception of Jim Grove).

When Bill Evans was just thinking about writing this book everyone close to him tried to convince him to publish it. Problem was... all he had was great memories and notes that he had jotted down over the years. Facts were needed to confirm his notes before putting them into print. That alone was a journey in itself and enough to make the average writer quit. Evans is not an average writer and definately not a quitter.

Once Bill made up his mind I don't think anyone could have painted a better picture. Bill mentioned to me the idea about the book the very first time I met him. I was thrilled thinking that the glory days of my high school football were going to be bound into a book. One problem though... Bill graduated five years after me. The detailed recollections Billy Evans puts in this book took care of this. It's funny how no matter which year you graduated... you can relate and fit right in. For anyone that has experienced what it's like to compete and win championships, you'll love this book. The book shows what it takes to be a champion.

I received the first copy of the book and I read it all that very first night. Just couldn't put the book down. I've read it two more times since. Why, because it is almost like taking a trip back in time. All that hard work really pays off and it will stay with you the rest of your life. I feel very fortunate to have been a part of all this.
