Dunnavant is the author of five sports books, including nationally acclaimed biographies of football icons Paul “Bear” Bryant and Bart Starr. In THE MISSING RING, he told the story of an Alabama football team’s frustrated perfection in an imperfect world. In THE FIFTY-YEAR SEDUCTION, he traced college football’s rise as a big business manipulated by television. His books, which often strike at the collision of sports and culture, have been called “evocative and provocative” (SPORTS ILLUSTRATED), “fascinating” (THE NEW YORK TIMES), and “definitive“ (THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS). Dunnavant started covering big-time college sports as a teenager and is a former national college football writer for THE NATIONAL, Frank Deford’s revolutionary all-sports newspaper from the early 1990s. The founder of five specialty magazines, including the online title CRIMSONREPLAY.COM, Dunnavant has spent much of his career as an award-winning magazine editor and writer in New York and Atlanta, directing coverage of everything from politics to college football, for publications including MEDIAWEEK, ATLANTA, PAYDIRT ILLUSTRATED, SPORT and BUSINESSWEEK. He has been utilized as an expert commentator and film consultant on several television documentaries dealing with college football history, including HBO’s BREAKING THE HUDDLE, ESPN’s HONOR ROLL, and CBS’ THE BEAR.
