-- Paul Dunn Jr., was twelve when he saw his first football game in Balboa Stadium in San Diego. He decided then and there that he wanted to be a professional football player.
He had no idea just how he would achieve his dream but never the less he was to begin his long, difficult journey to the NFL in spite of the many obstacles he would face. Paul grew up in the 1950's and 1960's in the black community of San Diego called South East. His family was poor having eight children to support so he would have to depend on hard work and scholarships to get through college.
If you love the game of football you will enjoy learning some of the inside facts of the game as told by Paul and some of the trials and tribulations he went through to play the sport that he loved so much. He has a wonderful since of humor and the readers will have a few laughs and may also shed a few tears.
Paul says, "Not everyone can be a super star…it takes eleven men on the team and they all have their parts to play." The author, Judith Smith Wilson asked Paul if he knew then what he knows now, ie: the injuries he has suffered and the health problems he now faces because of playing the game of football, would he do it all again? Paul replied, "IN A HEART BEAT!"http://www.brightonpublishing.com
