First and Thirty



A Big Game, a Turbulent Time Nixon was president. The Vietnam War was raging and the civil rights movement was in full swing. Everything in America seemed to be changing and the kids were right in the middle of it. Of course, teenagers still did what they ve always done. They attended high school, went out on dates, worked summer jobs, and drank beer. Many also played sports. In Chattanooga, Tennessee, it had been 30 years since City High had defeated Central High in football. First and Thirty follows the lives of the City football players and their friends as they undergo the trials and tribulations of being in high school during these tumultuous years, while attempting to beat their arch-rivals on the gridiron. On a cold night in November 1970, the maroon-clad seniors of City s Dynamo football team took the field one last time, carrying the indelible lessons that Head Coach Bobby Davis had instilled in them. Would this be the game that would break the spell Central had held over them?

About the Author

First and Thirty was Buck’s first published book. He felt compelled to write the story about this unique experience in his life. He got the idea to from the last high school reunion he attended where fellow alumina were reminiscing about how their time in high differed from the average high school experience. He was next encouraged to write a book by a freelance consultant who after hearing Buck speak at a sales meeting told him he should write a book and share his sales experience. He was inspired to give writing a try. So in the spring of 2014 the writing of First and Thirty began. Maybe the sales book is next. Carlton Buck Buchanan was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
