 About the Book 

Over the years since George Gipps death at 25 in 1920, much of what has been written about the enigmatic young man has been based on sketchy research or downright fabrication. This book contradicts the latter with facts and first hand informationMoreOver the years since George Gipps death at 25 in 1920, much of what has been written about the enigmatic young man has been based on sketchy research or downright fabrication. This book contradicts the latter with facts and first hand information about one of the greatest athletes of all time. While former president Ronald Reagans name is synonymous with The Gipper because of his movie role as George Gipp, the story of the real Gipper is a fascinating one replete with not only gridiron heroics but intrigue, romance, humor, and pathos. This book includes exclusive accounts of everything from how Gipp really got the nickname Gipper to Notre Dames rise to national football prominence under the Knute Rockne-coached teams led by Gipp. Other never-before-told historical surprises are in store within. Gipp, a great athlete, but also human, had frailties and virtues as we all do. This book is for everyone.
