Summary

A small school struggles to survive in the scholastic football world. George School, a Quaker boarding school in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, has maintained a football program since 1923. The Quakerly Gridiron Brothers describes the many trials and ultimate successes it has undergone since its inception. The story, told through the eyes of the former players, details the difficulties both philosophically and physically of competing in a high impact sport. It also details the positive growth and learning that takes place. The players' experiences vary but most agree that the camaraderie and bonding had a long-lasting impact on them. The book starts with the debate over the roll football plays in a Quaker school, passes through the war years, and winds up in the modern era of concussion awareness.
