12 mighty orphans

Even If you think you don't like football, You WILL Now!
This book tells the true story of the Fort Worth Masonic Home boys and the winning spirit of a bunch of kids who were too poor to afford even a ball to start with.  In the dusty streets of depression era  Fort Worth, Texas a bespeckled quiet man takes a position at an orphanage.  The boys were smaller than most of the opponents.  The uniforms they wore were mismatched but the spirit they brought to the game was unmatched.  They had no chance of winning in a place where football was a religion, but win they did.  This is the true account of what took place.  Jim Dent has worked his magic and made this tale live.
