The Rise of the Seminoles is the fairy-tale story of Florida State University football. From 197375, the football team at FSU had a combined record of 429. The next season, Bobby Bowden took over as head football coach and, over the next thirty-three years, led FSU to twenty-one bowl game wins and two National Championships.
The Rise of the Seminoles is not just about Bobby Bowden; it is about the season that started it all: 1976. Before Bowden took over and the University of Miami gained its notoriety, college football in the state of Florida consisted of the University of Florida. Florida State wasn??t even on the radar. Today, FSU is a football powerhouse and recently won the 2013 National Championship.
Through the writing talents of Lew Freedman, one of only two reporters covering FSU during Bowden??s time, this book follows the incredible journey the Seminoles have taken through history. Drawing from firsthand experience and Bowden himself, Freedman is the perfect author to bring this story to life. No matter their age, fans of the FSU football program can enjoy and take pride in their team??s very own rags-to-riches story.
