Walk-On: My Reluctant Journey to Integration at Auburn University

$25.00

What are the odds of…

…a high school athlete playing his first organized football game in 11th grade and walking-on to a Southeastern conference collegiate program and earning a scholarship in his first year… becoming one of two African Americans on the team… and a three-year starter…

…that little black boy who grew up in segregated Birmingham, Alabama becoming the Chairman of the Auburn University Foundation Board and leading the campaign to raise $1 billion for his alma mater…

Thom Gossom Jr. is that man and Walk-On is his story. A journey that began in segregated Birmingham, Alabama in 1952 and is still being written today.
