Kevin Turner was always good at football. After playing fullback for and graduating from the University of Alabama, he spent his career in the National Football League with the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots, laying vicious blocks on his opponents and playing the game with physical abandon. But after his career came to an end, Kevin developed ALS, a devastating disease of the brain that may have been caused by his participation in the game he loved. IN AMERICAN MAN, Jon Frankel provides a powerful portrait of an athlete whose diagnosis has inspired him to help in the quest to find answers about this mysterious disease.
