Football's Famous Coaches

Football has come a long way since the days of Granny Rice's youth, when as a 138lb halfback, he was all but massacred as a member of the Vanderbilt University eleven, back in 1899. But Granny never lost the spirit behind college football, and through his eyes the football coaches - the men who taught and teach the game to the youngsters of our land - constitute a vital cornerstone of a sports happy America. 

**The program includes a 1947 recording made at the Rose Bowl luncheon, of Grantland Rice praising Alonzo Stagg.
