Many sportscasters will call a team legendary for their play in a single game. The term "legendary" also has been used in conjunction with certain players, whether for their career or for a feat during a single event. Many National Football League (NFL) teams are legendary for winning multiple Super Bowls. Others are legendary for plays and players we all remember. There is only one team that can claim the legendary status of the only team undefeated in an entire season. The Miami Dolphins began their odyssey in 1966 as a last place team. Six years later they went undefeated in the regular season winning seventeen games. They then went on to win their two playoff games and Super Bowl VII. Many of the game's great names were on this team. Bob Griese, Larry Czonka, Manny Fernandez, and others will forever be known for this feat that has yet to be duplicated. Yet, as author Mark Stewart demonstrates, the 1972 champions are not the only team creating a wonderful football team history. Players like Dan Marino and coach Don Shula are in the annals of history for the Miami Dolphins. As with other books in the "Team Spirit" series, Stewart uses the Dolphins to illustrate the good teamwork and preparation it takes to become champions. Colorful photographs, detailed information on players and games, and other interesting sections make this an excellent addition to any school or public library nonfiction collection.
