From the executive director of the NFL Hall of Fame comes a sweeping and lively history of the NFL, timed to coincide with the NFL's 100th anniversary season.

The NFL has come a long way from its founding in Canton, Ohio, in 1920. In the hundred years that have passed since that fateful day, the former scrappy upstart league that once struggled to stay afloat has become America's most popular and lucrative professional sport. Along the way, it has survived a host of challenges--the Great Depression and World War II, controversies and scandals, battles over labor rights and competition from rival leagues--even as it has produced American icons like Vince Lombardi, Joe Montana, and Tom Brady. It is an extraordinary and entertaining history that could be told only by Joe Horrigan, executive director of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and perhaps the greatest living historian of the NFL. By drawing upon decades of NFL archives, Joe has written the definitive history of the NFL. Compelling, eye-opening, and authoritative, NFL Century is a must-read for NFL fans and anyone who loves the game of football.
JOE HORRIGAN began his long career at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977 as the museum's curator-researcher. Now the Hall of Fame's executive director, Horrigan oversees the operations and related programs of the nationally accredited museum. He also administers the Hall of Fame's annual enshrinee selection process. Regarded as the foremost historian on pro football, he has authored, co-authored, or edited several books on the subject, including The Pro Football Hall of Fame's 50th Anniversary Book: Where Greatness Lives. He is the co-host of the popular weekly national radio show Pro Football Hall of Fame Radio, on SiriusXM, and has been featured in numerous NFL Films presentations and sports documentaries.
