Fighting Patriots Book
Fighting Patriots; The First Three Years of Homewood High School Football was written by former player Wade Kirkpatrick under the pen name Patrick Kirk. The book tells the story of a brand new high school in Homewood, Alabama in 1972 and how a twenty-three-year-old, first-time head coach built a winning football program. Told from the point-of-view of more than thirty contributors who participated, the book is more than game highlights, scores, and player’s bio’s; it’s the entire community it took to win a State Championship in the third year.
The author came to me with objects he wanted on the cover of the book, the trophy, a helmet, a sign, and the team. We came up with a design to help the book fly off the shelves.
