Although many fans think Butler University basketball took off with its back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances in 2010 and 2011, the Butler Bulldogs have a long history of tenaciously outplaying larger and better-known teams. In Butler Basketball Legends, veteran sports writer Stan Sutton profiles the legacy of the Butler University basketball program and the coaches, players, and fans who give it heart.
Sutton takes readers behind the scenes to meet Butler's legendary stars and hear their stories, including players like Darnell Archey, Gordon Hayward, Matt Howard, and Mike Green, and unforgettable coaches like Thad Matta and Brad Stevens, and of course, Tony Hinkle. For 41 years Mr. Hinkle was the cornerstone of the athletics department and built a winning basketball program around small guards, short but stout centers, and players other coaches thought inadequate, leading Butler to over 550 victories. From the fabled feats of past teams all the way up to the first season of new head coach LaVall Jordan, Butler Basketball Legends is a must-read for all who love the game.

"This book provides practical strategies for developing the mental skills which help speed you to your full potential."---Dave Winfield
What does it mean to play heads-up baseball? A heads-up player has confidence in his ability, keeps control in pressure situations, and focuses on one pitch at a time. His mental skills enable him to play consistently at or near his best despite the adversity baseball presents each day.
"My ability to fully focus on what I had to do on a daily basis was what made me the successful player I was. Sure I had some natural ability, but that only gets you so far. I think I learned how to focus; it wasn't something that I was necessarily born with." -- Hank Aaron
"Developing and refining my mental game has played a critical role in my success in baseball. For years players have had to develop these skills on their own. This book provides practical strategies for developing the mental skills that will help speed you toward your full potential." -- Dave Winfield
This handy little guide is packed with tips and techniques for anybody who’s been climbing for a short while and wants to improve their technique. Clearly the best place to practise climbing skills is on a climbing wall or (harnessed securely) on a rock face, but we hope these ideas will give you some tips on what kit to invest in, help you improve your technique next time you climb and simply inspire you to go for it. We can’t promise that reading these ideas will see you climbing ropeless up mountains in the style of Tom Cruise in MI2 (we certainly wouldn’t recommend it) but we do hope you find them entertaining, inspiring and informative. Happy scrambling!
If you read my first book, Buy a Game, you know what happened: I finally made the team my senior year, and the rest is history. I walked on in college, got recruited to another college after my freshman season, and played nine years of professional basketball in eight countries.
During this process, in 2006, I began publishing videos to a new site called YouTube. Over the course of more than 7,000 videos, many players asked questions about a shared challenge that has kept myriad players from advancing in basketball: performing at tryouts.
Some of the most common questions: How can I best impress the coach at tryouts? What can I do to stand out?What position should I play at tryouts? What if I'm not allowed to play my normal position during tryouts? How can I get the returning players to respect my game?What mindset should I have during tryouts? What can I do to better my skills with only a week’s time before tryouts? Should I get hyped up before tryouts or remain calm and steady? I didn't make it this year. Can you tell me exactly what I should do to get ready for tryouts next season? I feel like my career will be over before it starts if I don't make the team - can you please help me get ready for tryouts?
To address these questions and others on the subject of basketball-team tryouts, I created this workbook.
By completing this workbook, you will: Know exactly what will be expected of you at tryoutsUnderstand your ideal mindset for playing your best and know how to get into this mindset at any timeBe able to relax yourself and defeat any possible nerves or performance anxiety before tryouts Perform to the best of your ability at tryouts, definitively securing the roster spot you covet
A hard-hitting look at the Chicago Bears’ legendary player and coach, composed of carefully curated archival Chicago Tribune columns and features. Mike Ditka was drafted by the Bears as a tight end in 1961 and went on to earn Rookie of the Year honors, multiple Pro Bowl selections, and a 1963 championship ring with Chicago during his playing career. Ditka retired in 1972 after stints with Philadelphia and Dallas (where he won Super Bowl VI), but he returned to Chicago as head coach in 1982. He became symbolic of the tough, hard-nosed, hyper-competitive style that defined the Bears through the ’80s. Following the 1985 Bears’ unforgettable season and Super Bowl victory, Ditka was enshrined as a hero in the minds of Bears fans everywhere.Ditka will take readers on a fascinating and entertaining ride through the words of the award-winning Chicago Tribune journalists who covered “Iron Mike” for six decades. From his playing career to his coaching career, from personal triumphs to mishaps and scandals, Ditka is the ultimate fans’ guide to the career and life of a Hall of Famer who came to define Chicago football in the modern age.
