Hard to believe one person could achieve so much.

An easy read, really liked the military stuff and how someone described more or less as smallish was so super athletic.

“Whatever Happened to Lil’ Bobby Burton?A True Adventure”

Kansas City— April 18, 2019 A non-fiction book published this week tells the true adventures of an unlikely college football MVP. At only 145 pounds, “Lil’ Bobby Burton” was on the receiving end of many touchdown passes thrown by 1950 Loyola University quarterback (and future Pro Hall of Famer) Don Klosterman.

As a Wichita Shocker, the “Mighty Mite” was the 1953 MVP playing offense, defense and punting for nearly 60 minutes each game.

Bobby was recruited by the Philadelphia Eagles, but instead became an air force pilot and deployed all over the world. He survived two plane crashes and kept on flying. He served in Vietnam and retired with more than 20 years of service.

“Whatever Happened to Lil’ Bobby Burton? A True Adventure” is available on in paperback and ebook versions. The author, Becky Brinkley, is a local freelance writer.
