Riassunto: On a dank, rainy evening in mid-November 1970, a Southern Airways jet carrying the Marshall football team home to Huntington, West Virginia, after a disappointing 17-14 loss at East Carolina, crashed just short of Tri-State Airport. Killed were 37 players, 33 staff members, coaches and boosters, and the five-person crew of the DC-9. A team of promise was gone in an instant. The Marshall Story relates the true and inspiring story of how Marshall and a shocked community rebounded from the tragedy. Led by coach Jack Lengyel, the Thundering Herd became the Young Herd, a group of overachievers that improbably won two games in their first season and started Marshall on its long road back to respectability. The Marshall Story will make you weep and cheer. It's a tribute to those who sacrificed and those who persevered. But, most of all, The Marshall Story is a story of overcoming long odds and making it to the top.
L'autore: Written by four former sports reporters and editors who covered Thundering Herd football over parts of four decades.
