Book reading and signing: Slingin' Sam: The Life and Times of the Greatest
Quarterback Ever to Play the Game by Joe Holley
Author and Houston Chronicle reporter Joe Holley discusses his book about Slingin' Sammy Baugh, who has been called "the greatest quarterback who ever lived, college or pro." Baugh, who played for TCU and the Washington Redskins, single-handedly revolutionized the game of football. As the first modern quarterback, Baugh led the Redskins to five title games and two NFL championships, while leading the league in passing six times — a record that endures to this day — and in punting four times. In 1943, the triple-threat Baugh also scored a triple crown when he led the league in passing, punting, and interceptions.
