On Monday, November 16th, the biographers of Freddie Steinmark: Faith, Family, Football, Bower Yousse and Thomas Cryan, hosted a special book presentation and screening of the new major motion picture “My All American”, at the National Geographic Museum in Washington, DC. Special guests included Representatives Ed Perlmutter (D-CO), Lamar Smith (R-TX), and Dr. Coleman of the National Cancer Institute.
In 1969, two days after playing bravely in “The Game of the Century” — a come-from-behind victory over Arkansas that ensured the University of Texas the National Championship — Freddie went to the doctor concerned about a pain in his left thigh. A biopsy revealed a cancerous bone tumor. Americans watched closely as Steinmark confronted life’s ultimate challenge. His openness during his 17-month battle with cancer helped reframe the national conversation surrounding cancer and the ongoing race for a cure.
Nardi Media is honored to help bring Freddie’s story mainstream in America, including securing interviews with Freddie’s biographers on radio, television, and NPR affiliates across the country, and this Saturday, November 21st, CBS This Morning will air a piece about Freddie’s life.
