Larry Csonka is a former professional American football fullback and Super Bowl MVP who played for the Miami Dolphins and, briefly, the New York Giants. He is a Hall of Famer, a two-time Super Bowl champion, and a member of the 1972 Miami Dolphins, the only team in NFL history to win the title undefeated, 17-0. In Head On: A Memoir (Matt Holt), Csonka pulls back the curtain to share how he and the team achieved their perfect season. A gifted storyteller with an authentic voice, Csonka writes about quitting football at a young age, his often-combative relationship with coach Don Shula, his exploits with his NFL pals, and hanging out with stars like Elvis Presley and Burt Reynolds. But more at home in the wilderness than on a football field, his moments outside the spotlight reveal the most about this larger-than-life figure. Csonka writes about raising hell in his formative years on an Ohio dirt farm, having early run-ins with the law, confronting thieves with a sawed-off shotgun, and being adrift at night on the Bering Sea with gale-force winds raging. Head On speaks of a life lived with the same audacity and authority with which he ran the football.
