The NFL is more than a professional sports league. What began with representatives from four teams meeting in a Canton, OH automobile showroom in 1920 has evolved into a global phenomenon. The transformation was fueled by the remarkable talent on the field, and the innovative minds who understood how to grow the league into a worldwide sensation.

 

In The NFL 100: The Greatest Moments of the NFL’s Century (Triumph Books, Oct 15, 2019), veteran sportswriter Craig Ellenport combines his unmatched knowledge and passion for the sport to celebrate the NFL’s centennial season. The result is a thoughtfully ranked and brilliantly illustrated collection of the most memorable moments and biggest personalities that have shaped the identity of league. Highlights include:

 

  • A heartfelt foreword from Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman explaining the impact and importance of NFL memories in people’s lives
  • Career profiles of the athletes and coaches who changed the game, including Barry Sanders, George Halas, Jerry Rice and other fan favorites
  • Hundreds of stunning photographs capturing generations of iconic moments on and off the gridiron
  • Remembering the teams that defined their eras, from Lombardi’s Packers to Shula’s Dolphins up through Belichick’s Patriots
  • All the unforgettable plays that exhilarated fans over the decades, including the Catch, the Drive, the Immaculate Reception, the Philly Special and more

 

The NFL 100 does justice to its subject, honoring the league that has been at the center of American sports for a century. Fans of all ages will find value in the pages of this must-have commemorative keepsake.
