This author grew up in the small town of Pittsboro, just eighteen miles west of Indianapolis. He graduated from Pittsboro High and Indiana State University. He tells his unique story of growing up, playing, and coaching high school basketball in several small central and northern Indiana towns, in the 50s, 60s and 70s. He feels lucky to have coached with and against several Indiana High School Hall of Fame coaches. Because he feels a connection with the movie “HOOSIERS”, he blends episodes that happened in the movie with situations he had during his almost twenty-years of playing and coaching. Finally, he shares how a medical difficulty his wife suffered six years ago brought them closer together and back to Jesus Christ.

If you enjoy the movie “HOOSIERS”, comeback stories, love stories, and people successfully dealing with adversity, he hopes you will enjoy, and connect with this book.
