In the golden years of professional football, one team and one coach reigned supreme : the 1960’s Green Bay Packers, and the fiery Vince Lombardi.

Run to Daylight! is Lombardi’s own diary of a week at the helm of that magnificent club. Together with legendary sports-journalist, W. C. Heinz, Lombardi takes us from the first review of game films on Monday right through the final gun on Sunday afternoon. We see the planning, the plotting, the practice and the pain as forty-plus men come together to form that precision unit that makes for winning football. Lombardi gives us his views on life, the game, coaching, success, family, and the famed “Lombardi Sweep. ”

Now, in this anniversary edition, with a special foreword by David Maraniss, we are once again reminded of the passion and power behind America’s greatest game. Written in W. C. Heinz’s inimitable style, Run to Daylight! is part diary, part philosophy text, part coaches manual. Here, is professional football at its best.
