Coach with him, not just through the X and Os, but the ecstasy of winning, the lessons learned from losing, and the joy of his experiences as he see young kids grow to success in basketball, but more importantly grow to be successful in life and becoming good fathers and family men. Make the decisions with him as he balances the opportunities of coaching success with the most important successes in life of being a good husband, father, and Christian. It was one of the most positive and touching reading experiences Ive had this year. Although this is a fictional book, author William Joseph Palmer says, I really liked the way the author tied his plotting to the real historical events of the decades as they unfolded and interwove the fictional characters with real characters like Oscar Robertson and Ray Crowe. -William Palmer, award-winning author of the Dickens Series
