Thanks to Ed Sherman of the Shermanreport.com for posting a book report on Raye of Light. I appreciate that Ed recognized the book about Duffy Daugherty's Underground Railroad is an untold story.
Ed, an award winning journalist as a writer at the Chicago Tribune, now runs his website that examines the sports media world. He also writes columns for Indiana University National Sports Journalism Center and Poynter.org.
A premise of the “Raye of Light” is placing the proper credit for the integration of college football with the ground-breaking roles played by Michigan State, Jimmy Raye and Duffy Daugherty. Raye was the South's first black quarterback to win a national title.
