There’s a great book about Jim Thorpe called Carlisle vs. Army. A good read.
Born a poor half breed in Oklahoma, he grew up to run track, play college football, Pro football, Pro baseball, Pro basketball, be an Olympic Athlete, champion ball room dancer, rights activist, actor, and first president of the NFL. Jim Thorpe, you are truly the greatest athlete in American History
