This book was autographed by Rex Kern on October 28th, 2021 at his appearance at Conrads. This book is already signed by Rex and can NOT be personalized. 

Rex Kern was an All-Ohio athlete in three sports at four positions: basketball, baseball, and both quarterback and safety in football. His dream was to play varsity basketball and football at Ohio State. He did become Ohio State’s starting quarterback his sophomore year, but due to surgeries was unable to continue his OSU basketball career. After graduation, he played for the Baltimore Colts and the Buffalo Bills, starting at cornerback, a new position, and safety during his four NFL seasons. In 2007, Rex was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. When injuries ended his football career, his goal was to work toward becoming the Athletic Director at Ohio State. Despite his Ph.D. in athletic administration, athletic accomplishments, and off-season experience, that door was closed. Fortunately, lifelong mentor and friend Jack Havens led Rex to success in a start-up company, acquisitions, banking, and investments. Rex wanted a memoir to recognize and honor dozens of his past mentors, as well as guide and inform future generations of the Kern family. He was convinced to open that book to friends, Buckeye fans, and anyone who might enjoy an All-American story. 

“Rex, the race chapter was very well done. Hopefully, others will read the book and realize race issues are ... about compassion and caring for your fellow man. Glad to endorse your book.”

Archie Griffin, Ohio State football 1972-73-74-75, 1974 and 1975 Heisman Trophy winner.

“I really enjoyed this book on many levels ... ”

Kirk Herbstreit, football analyst, ESPN.

“The book gives the reader a glimpse into Rex’s whole life ... (H)e has always had INTEGRITY.”

Steve Hayes, son of Woody and Anne Hayes.

The Perfect Christmas Gift

I wasn’t able to attend Rex Kern’s book signing when he was in town. At first, I tried to find this book elsewhere but couldn’t. I’m glad I didn’t. Who knew that Conrads had available autographed books? This will be one of the best surprise Christmas gifts for my wife this year. My wife and I found Rex Kern waiting for a shuttle to the airport after the February 2020 Buckeye Cruise for Cancer. We had talked to him on the ship and he recognized us. We told him that he was in the wrong line for the shuttle but that he was welcome to ride to the airport with us instead of waiting in a long line for the shuttle. He agreed. While I sat up front with the driver, my wife sat in the back with Mr. Kern. He's one of the nicest people you would ever meet. He genuinely enjoyed meeting people and talking to them during the cruise. Here's a photo of Rex Kern when he let us take a picture of him showing his championship ring.

Love it!!

Am truly enjoying reading about Rex's childhood, school years, and his time as an Ohio State QB, and beyond. The photos are great, and it brings back some great memories of the Woody Hayes football era. Thank you Rex for autographing the book!
