|Plot Summary of Fighting Back|
|"Rocky Bleier, a physically marginal but emotionally and intellectually superior running back from Notre Dame is drafted first by the Pittsburgh Steelers and then -- by Uncle Sam. At war he nearly loses a foot to a grenade. This is the account of Rocky's "fight back" from having been told that he "might walk normally again with a lot of therapy" to playing on and running for the Pittsburgh Steelers, ultimately to a successful participation in the Super Bowl.
