North Dallas Forty
Seth Maxwell - Seth is the the quarterback of the North Dallas Bulls. He is the most popular player on the team and around the city. Seth is Phil's closest friend and parties just as much as Phil does.
B.A. Strothers - B.A. is the head coach of the North Dallas Bulls. His only presence in the book is during the football scenes. He is well respected by the men he coaches and is known as a "player's coach".
The theme of this passage is the same for the entire book. Self interest and personal success is shown in every page of this book. Every professional athlete, or coach, mentioned in the book was selfish and only cared about themselves. The fame of professional football is higher than any other profession. The stakes are also high to maintain at the top. This is my favorite passage because it shows how arrogant the characters are. In order to achieve personal success, the players and coaches must rely on each other.
