In Louisiana in the 1960s, black quarterbacks were unheard of, let alone black superstars, but that was before Tater Henry. Rodney’s life was sports (football in the fall and baseball in the spring) and his twin sister, Angie. It was in the midst of baseball that he met Tater, and a solid friendship was born, despite overwhelming obstacles. It was also the birth of a football legend, the Legend of Tater Henry. (Eliot Rosewater Indiana High School Book Award, Rosie Award, 2018)
