Leonard Tolbert was born and raised in Breckenridge, Texas. He is a retired football coach with thirty-seven years spent in the high school and semi-pro ranks. He has spent his career in many regions of Texas, giving him a wide view of many cultures. His association with so many young men, coaches, parents, and fans has left him with a lifetime of stories.
He is now retired in Brownsville, Texas, enjoying the beaches, his friends, his pets, and golf, as well as writing his stories.
He is thankful to an old coaching friend, Frank Riney, for insisting that he write the book. He is also thankful to several other friends who inspired him to continue and finish the book.
