New Terps Book is Out--And I'm In It!

Johnny Holliday, the voice of Maryland Terrapins football and basketball since 1979, has again joined forces with author Steve Moore to write, "Hoop Tales: Maryland Terrapins Men's Basketball." This book is part of a series published by Globe Pequot.

The book begins with a forward by the preeminent sport author of this generation, John Feinstein:

"There is no one more qualified to be your tour guide through any kind of history of Maryland basketball, whether it focuses on last season or twenty-five seasons ago, than Johnny Holliday. Not only has he been there all those years, but he really does know all the people who have been a part of the ups and the downs the program has gone through, not just the coaches but the players, the doctors, trainers, (and) heck, even the reporters who have covered the team."

Johnny and Steve were kind enough to ask me for a contribution to this book. I wrote about the thrill of watching the Terps finally win the national championship. You'll find it in the chapter titled, "True Believers." This piece represents my debut in the book publishing industry.

The book will be in stores soon. You can order it on
