Inside the Park: Running the Base Path of Life

Willie Wilson

Inside the Park: Running the Base Path of Life by Willie WilsonWillie Wilson played baseball with the mentality of a football player-a grimace, on his face. Totally unprepared for the spotlight of being in the major leagues, Wilson experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, sometimes unable to tell them apart. He helped lead the Kansas City Royals to their rst World Series in only his second full season in the Major Leagues. His 1983 arrest on a cocaine charge could have been the defining moment of his life and sent him spiraling downward. Instead, he responded by helping the Royals to the World Series championship in 1985, playing a key role...

At the Hang-Up: Seeking Your Purpose, Running the Race, Finishing Strong

Ted Owens

At the Hang-Up: Seeking Your Purpose, Running the Race, Finishing Strong by Ted OwensThis is the inspirational story of Ted Owens-still the coach with the most wins in the history of Allen Fieldhouse-from growing up as a boy on a cotton farm in Southwestern Oklahoma during the Great Depression to coaching at the highest levels of the college basketball world. "At the end of each day on the farm, we would gure the total weight of the cotton we had pulled. We called it the "hang-up," says Owens. One day, in a competition to see who could pull the most cotton, Owens was leading his father, who then gave him the greatest life lesson: "It's not what you have now that is important,...

Tigers vs. Jayhawks: From the Civil War to the Battle for No.1

Mark Godich

Tigers vs. Jayhawks: From the Civil War to the Battle for No.1 by Mark GodichMissouri and Kansas went from unranked at the start of the 2007 college football season to playing for No. 1 in the country on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, so no wonder Brent Musburger chose his words carefully as he addressed a national television audience moments before kickoff of the rivals' historic meeting. "Let this sink in," Musburger, the long-time broadcaster, said. "If either Kansas or Missouri wins their next two games, they will play for the national championship." Kansas and Missouri? Really? Really. The 2007 college football season was unlike any other. Yet in a year filled...

Relentless: From Redshirt to the Rock of the Jayhawks

Travis Releford

Relentless: From Redshirt to the Rock of the Jayhawks by Travis RelefordEvery team has at least one. That one player who's called on to make something happen. Throughout his career on the University of Kansas basketball team, Travis Releford was that guy. So much so, in fact, that on Senior Night 2013, head coach Bill Self told the Allen Fieldhouse crowd that Releford was "the rock of our team." In his new book, Relentless, Releford candidly describes the hard work it took on the court and in the classroom to become "the Rock of the Jayhawks." Growing up in the inner-city- sometimes without food on the table, he became one of the most highly recruited basketball...

Building The Perfect Star: Changing the Trajectory of Sports and the People in Them

Bob Ward & Mac Engel

Building The Perfect Star: Changing the Trajectory of Sports and the People in Them by Bob Ward & Mac EngelToday, it is inconceivable for a professional or even small college sports team to go without a coach designated to enhancing conditioning, strength training, and overall performance. But someone had to be first. In 1976, the Dallas Cowboys and Pro Football Hall of Fame head coach Tom Landry hired Dr. Bob Ward and told him to go to work. Part of the aura of the Dallas Cowboys was to be ahead of the curve, which made hiring Ward a natural step forward. No one could have predicted that Ward would become the key figure in revolutionizing how athletes prepare and train for generations to come. Ward...
