About the Book    About the Author

What do Tim Tebow, Nick Saban and the former seat of the Ottoman Empire have in common? More than you think. Though Turkey is known for its soccer, Islam and burgeoning economic and political influence, a small band of young Turks are turning to a surprising venue to find fun, friendship and even social advancement—American football. In "Run Like a Stallion," author Rhett Burns draws upon his two-year stint coaching the Istanbul-based Koc Stallions to introduce readers to modern Turkey—its culture and contradictions and characters—through the peculiar lens of an obscure sport.
