Clinton Jones on new president Kevin Guskiewciz and revisiting Kenan Stadium

Visit my website homepage, TomShanahan.Report

Michigan State College Football Hall of Famer Clinton Jones was a recent guest on “The Drive with Jack.”

Jones, a two-time All-American halfback on the 1965 and 1966 national title teams, discussed Michigan State hiring Kevin Guskiewicz as the school’s new president. Jones also gave a “shoutout” to my research writing “Raye of Light, Jimmy Raye, Duffy Daugherty the Integration of College Football and the 1965-66 Michigan State Spartans.

Jones has learned about Guskiewciz through Dr. Tom Apostle, a Michigan State graduate, and his wife Sharon Lawrence, an actress (NYPD Blue) and North Carolina graduate.

THE RIGHT THING TO DO

The True Pioneers of College Football Integration in the 1960s

I recount many ignored milestones from the true pioneers of college football integration — all of them establishing history before the 1970 USC-Alabama game that has benefitted from revisionist history — in my book that is now available for pre-order. Click here or see below:

My books tell the true story of college football integration in the 1960s and address the myths and fiction that allowed a false narrative surrounding the 1970 USC-Alabama game to usurp the credit from the true pioneers. As I said when I spoke at the National Sports Media Association book festival, no two books provide an accurate portrayal more than RAYE OF LIGHT and THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

I’ll put my facts up against anybody, anytime, anywhere.
