Patie Corbin, a
former college All-American and New York Giant
All-NFL half-back finally realized he had made a
giant mistake - but what could he do about it now?
It was too late to back out! And besides, he wanted
to help his country.
Anyway, that's what Jack and
Buddy, two old teammates at Ole Miss, told him he
would be doing. Then, too, to leave the Mississippi
Gulf Coast would mean leaving the only woman he had
ever known who could challenge his intellectual
abilities, a Mississippi State graduate even. But
Jack and Buddy had not told him there would be
bullets! So Great the Pretender is an in-depth look
at the life of a former professional football player
after the crowd stops yelling.
