Description:
Benny Friedman, the son of working class immigrants in Cleveland s Jewish ghetto, arrived at the University of Michigan and transformed the game of football forever. At the time, in the 1920s, football was a dull, grinding running game, and the forward pass was a desperation measure. Benny would change all of that.

In Ann Arbor, the rookie quarterback s passing abilities so eclipsed those of other players that legendary coach Fielding Yost came back from retirement to coach him. The other college teams had no answer for Friedman s passing attack. He then went pro an unpopular decision at a time when the NFL was the poor stepchild to college football and was equally sensational, eventually signing with the New York Giants for an unprecedented $10,000, bringing fans and attention to the fledgling NFL.

Passing Game rediscovers this little-known sports hero and tells the story of Friedman s evolution from upstart to American celebrity, in a vivid narrative that will delight and enlighten football fans of all ages.
