Book review

Leroy Hill, a boy from the bottoms, was born the poorest of poor in the South long before the words "equal rights" were used in the same sentence. He faced racial profiling, job and housing discrimination, bigotry, and hatred for decades and despite it all-he joined the navy, served aboard the USS Lexington during World War II, fought in the Korean War, and had a successful career in the private sector. Leroy Hill never used his blackness as an excuse to waive his responsibilities to his God, his family, his friends or his profession. One of his sons, Anthony (Tony) Hill, became one of the youngest players to ever be drafted by the NFL. Earning a position as wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, Tony was awarded #80 on his jersey and the nickname "Thrill Hill" for his explosiveness. Tony played for the Cowboys from 1976 to 1986 and won two Super Bowl rings. His father, Leroy, acted as his manager and agent-a first ever in the NFL.
