Setting records and winning fans' hearts, George seems unstoppable -- until cruel fate intervenes.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4 - A picture-book biography of a Notre Dame football hero in the early 1900s. George Gipp initially attended Notre Dame on a baseball scholarship, but attracted the attention of Coach Knute Rockne, who encouraged him to give football a chance. Gipp suited up and became an outstanding player for his team. During his senior year, he became ill, but nonetheless played in the game against Northwestern on a day planned to honor his accomplishments. Two days later, he was hospitalized and died. Before his death, he told Coach Rockne at his hospital bedside to "win one for the Gipper," a phrase that was repeated eight years later in a locker room before Notre Dame went on to defeat Army at West Point. Langton's larger-than-life oil paintings are stronger than the pedestrian text, which is framed on each page. However, readers who have been curious about the expression will gain a clear understanding of its origin. - Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
