Chris Cagle, nicknamed “Red” after Red Grange, was a football phenom in the 1920s. When Notre Dame’s Knute Rockne gave his famous “win one for the Gipper” speech, he was talking about beating Cagle and West Point. This fascinating biography of the Louisiana native is a rousing tale of athletic competition, fateful young love, and an untimely, mysterious death, based on interviews with Cagle’s few surviving relatives and hundreds of documents, newspapers articles, and archival film.
