For The Love of the Game is Nick Cutro's humorous account of the years he spent as a player, coach, and professional evaluator of American football talent. His maverick career includes decades of work analyzing over three thousand athletes for both college and the professional ranks. The NFL's New York Jets relied on his keen insights as a scout between 1964-1968. During that time, the New York Jets managed to assemble enough talent to win the Super Bowl under the direction of quarterback Joe Namath. Cutro knows football inside and out. He was signed by the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles but an injury forced him to retire. As a star high school and college player he set several records, and his love of the game, youthful heart, and unique style or relating to young players made him an outstanding coach. Hank Stram, the legendary NFL head coach, said that coaching involved finding talent, evaluating talent, and motivating talent. Cutro is a master at all three. For The Love of the Game is a special book about the game of football. The book is a funny collection of memories and stories, mostly focused on author's experiences playing, coaching, and scouting. Few men know and love the game as well or as much as Cutro. His nonfiction memoir is for all football fans, but especially for those who might remember how things used to be back in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. Cutro's savvy and funny memoir goes the extra yard.
