College Basketball and Life's Greatest Lesson
COLLEGE BASKETBALL AND LIFE'S GREATEST LESSON is a memoir about my time as a member of the 2007-2008 Boston College Varsity Men's Basketball team. It chronicles my transformation from normal college freshman into one of only thirteen members of an elite Division I basketball program, offering a window into the life of a walk-on both on the court and in the locker room. This memoir begins with the unlikely way in which I became a member of the team a daily lunch-time pick-up basketball game with Coach Al Skinner and continues with my horrific first practice, my only career basket, and ultimately, my life-altering decision to transfer. Through my memoir, I examine what practices and games were like as a member of the team, describe the numerous arenas I played in across the country, and discuss the thrill of meeting different celebrities throughout the season.
