Paul Hemphill 1936–2009. Though Paul Hemphill’s 15 books rarely reached best-seller lists, he was acclaimed as a writer who brought to life small-time sports, evangelism, hard drinking, and other fixtures of Southern culture. I’m the son of a Birmingham trucker, he once said, and I have no business-or interest-in writing about any other part of the country. As a young man in Alabama, Hemphill dreamed of playing baseball, but he washed out in the first days of spring training for the Graceville Oilers, a Class D Florida team, said The Atlanta

Talk about Nobody's Hero

Paul Hemphill is one of a very, very few writers who can craft a a realistic novel meshing Southern racial transition into a delightful sports story. His success is no doubt because Hemphill knows the South. He has made a career writing about the South's best and worst of times. Moreover, he has an uncanny grasp of the emotions of human beings. And as a former athlete and sports writer, he knows how to describe sports so you feel the sweat of the locker room and the giddy excitement under the lights. Nobody's Hero in this case is Billy Ray Hunsinger, a big winner on the field in college and the Pros, who becomes a failure in his middle age---until he gets a chance to redeem himself coaching the offense for an all-black inner city team led a flashy quarterback with all the developing skills of a young Billy Ray. This may be Hemphill's warmest, most humorous book yet. It has to score as one of the most entertaining sports novels of recent years.

Once again southern author Paul Hemphill scores big with a telling story about about an old football star from the south, redemption sought and changing times. Billy Ray Hunsinger is a washed up all-star quarterback and person.His own worst enemy. A black teenage phenom named Mavis Jackson now quarterbacks Bill Ray's high school team. Coming from Atlanta's inner city, the kid needs a mentor and a father figure. Enters Billy Ray, from another era of Dixie. You can tell Hemphill was born, raised and lives the south. He knows how to write southern and clearly weave in its social barriers. His characters are well detailed. It's a touchdown!

Paul Hemphill, likely the South's finest writer, has in the past written about country music, NASCAR racing and minor -league baseball. Now he brings his considerable powers to high-school football. "Nobody's Hero" is as exciting and drama-packed as the end-of-the-season championship game between two arch rivals. But what truly sets Hemphill's work apart and above other sports-centered novels are the complex and very human relationships that form the backdrop for the big game.

NOBODY'S FOOL is a terrific sports novel that shows the changing heart in a relationship that grows in depth as the story unfolds. It's football better than FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS told in honest down-to-earth writing.
