Friday marked the 100th anniversary of a record-breaking blowout of a football game between Cumberland University and Georgia Tech.

The legendary game ended with Georgia Tech beating Cumberland 222 to 0.

Sam Hatcher wrote a book about it named Heisman's First Trophy. The Game That Launched Football in the South.

It details the story behind the score, which made the guys in that game heroes.

He spent part of Friday signing books in Nashville.
