The recent release of Stephenville Yellow Jacket Football, a book written by Stephenville's own Rick Sherrod, has drawn rave reviews from across the area.

It has even drawn the attention of several former Jacket alumni who plan to be on hand for a book signing at Barefoot Athletics Saturday afternoon.

"This entire process has been an absolute delight," said Sherrod. "I've gotten a lot of good responses from the community as well as numerous alumni."

As of Wednesday afternoon, Sherrod has at least 10 former Jacket players committed to attend the signing in addition to several current Jackets.

The list of alumni includes Mitch and Matt Copeland, German Chavarria, Brad Mills, Marshall Sherrod, Jared Slemmons, Jeffrey Thompson, T.R. Varnado, D.J. Vanden Berge and Joe Taylor.

The signing will begin at 2 p.m. and continue through 4 p.m.

Barefoot Athletics will have a limited number of books for sale on sight at a price of $21.99. The book is also available at local bookstores.
