"THORNHILL" is one HELL of a good football story and
much, much more.
About the strong work ethic that football demands of
all players. About right and wrong. About the rite of
passage. But most of all, "Thornhill" is about relationships
and enduring love.
William Ward Stevenson is a modern product of the
high-consumption, litigious 1980's. A time when a
generation of Americans expected to have it all and even
sued to get it. When the all-out quest for ego gratification,
self- fulfillment and winning at any cost, along with the
period's focus on glamorous external indicators of success,
The vortex of national pride, wealth, and, above all, the
greed that characterized the period is present in everyday
life of the people of Thornhill. All too soon, mother/father,
parent/child and peer relationships are exposed against
the backdrop of this renaissance of the "Glory Days" of
At the time, little was reported about the price to be
paid for such a renaissance. Yet it was there in all the
thrilling colors of the period, waiting underfoot to extract
payment for the excesses enjoyed.
The dark side of the period is brought to light in the
voice of the hill where the citizenry of Thornhill sit and
watch as their dreams and aspirations are played out
every Saturday afternoon by their sons on the football field
below. They are fulfilled generously, for Thornhill's top
rated football team does satisfy the town's long thirsted
for winning season. Culminating in the final game against
arch rival Pleasant Valley.
A game that glimmers with the bright and dark colors
of November when both triumph and disaster are at hand.
