“It was like God gelled that team together… everybody at the right place at the right time. It was an unbelievable dream season.” —Derrick Williams
Explosive freshmen. A smothering defense. A relentless senior captain at quarterback. And a legendary molder of men standing on the sidelines.
When one of college football’s most storied programs teetered on the brink of irrelevance, one improbable, magical Autumn would restore the trappings of America’s Game to the nation’s quintessential college town. From four downs at Indiana to three overtimes in Miami, it was a campaign for the ages that, nearly a decade later, still commands the hushed reverence of alumni and fans. Exhaustively researched and sourced, informed by hours of player, coach, and fan interviews and tied together through rich storytelling, this book presents the definitive account of Penn State’s 2005 football season.
“Back to Camelot: The Improbable Story of the 2005 Nittany Lions” will initially be released in print and digital formats, with an audiobook version to follow at a later date.
This book is still in the writing phase, and a release date is uncertain at this time.
