Homer Norton, the recently embattled and once deathly sick Aggies football coach, nearly choked on his celebratory steak in Biloxi, Mississippi, on New Year's Eve 1939, at the pointed inquiry about his 10-0 squad. How might anyone question the Texas A&M offense, he wondered, especially since a mere two days separated his boys from a shot at earning the school's first national title? But Norton's oft-questioned offense -- along with his vaunted defense (showing some things truly don't change in Aggieland) -- rose to the occasion in the 1940 Sugar Bowl against Tulane. In that most memorable game, John Kimbrough, a Cary Grant-handsome fullback, led A&M to the school's lone national championship. It's but one of many rousing contests vividly recounted in Brent Zwerneman's Game of My Life: 25 Stories of Aggies Football, a collection of tales from some of the best and most intriguing football players to ever don the Maroon & White.
