  • From Bob Knight to Bobby Wampler


Join award-winning writer Lynn Houser on a nostalgic journey through time in this collection of works going back to 1972. From his days as a student at Indiana University, to his eight years at a small Indiana daily, to his 28 years at the Bloomington (Ind.) Herald-Times, the author finds a common thread in the legendary Bob Knight. Four chapters are devoted entirely to the former Hoosier coach, covering his rise and his demise at IU, followed by his final landing at Texas Tech.

This author goes beyond Bob Knight, though. As a writer who also covered high school and professional sports, Houser canvesses a wide variety of subjects, not the least of which is Bobby Wampler, a courageous young man you can’t help but like. This book is a unique blend of topics and styles – from beat writing, to feature writing to column writing – and it includes illustrations.

In addition to having personal contact with the likes of Bob Knight, the author can honestly drop a few more names: Mickey Mantle, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Reggie Miller and Peyton Manning. They are all within the covers of this book, a little something for everybody and a stylish piece for your coffee table.

This book is a large 7” x 10” edition, containing approximately 208 pages, with a deluxe hardbound cover and color dust jacket. High-gloss, double-coated paper is used for superior photo reproduction. 7" x 10"
Approx. 208 pages
