A ball with no points tells the true story of your high school basketball team and the remarkable victory they achieved. Why was this an important book for you to write?
As I explained in book’s Prologue, this story was too special to let it just fade away and be forgotten forever. Our recent team reunion after 46 years made it clear how special those memories still were amongst all of us who made it happen. We lived every kid’s dream…and it was time to share the dream with everyone else.
I appreciated the candid nature with which you told your story. What was the hardest thing for you to write about?
It was describing some of the hardships that many of my teammates endured later in life, and that needed to part of the story. Life is hard, but despite those hardships, our friendships and bonds have remained stronger than ever.
What is one piece of advice someone gave you that changed your life?
“You can’t be afraid of what other people might think of you.” – Jim Valvano
What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your story?
Believe in yourself, and then go chase your dreams.
