What People Are Saying
Huddle Up, Hutch is a MUST PURCHASE for anyone connected to Salthawk Football – players, coaches, managers, fans, relatives, and anyone who ever lived in, or near, Hutchinson, KS, from 1902 to 2016. Steve Miller did a remarkable job researching, compiling, and presenting history, stories, and photos. The day the book arrived, I thought I would set it on the shelf and occasionally refer to it. Once I opened it and started reading the fascinating accounts, I became so engaged in it that I could not resist studying each and every page! Thank you for dedicating years of skill and effort to this worthy endeavor, Coach Miller!
