From 1971 to his retirement in 2011, Woody Durham was the “Voice of the Tar Heels,” the radio play-by-play man for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In this autobiography, Woody takes the reader on a nostalgic stroll down memory lane―from his descriptions of a sleepy Franklin Street in Chapel Hill and the days of football legend ChooChoo Justice to the enormous changes in college sports and how they are covered to his dozens of behind-the-scenes stories about the coaches and players he worked with during his tenure. An appendix offers Woody’s thoughts on every football and basketball player he covered who has an honored jersey at UNC.

Adam Lucas grew up dreaming of becoming a Carolina basketball player. A severe lack of both height and talent curtailed that dream, but he discovered another way to get as close as possible to the Tar Heels--writing about Carolina sports. He is the publisher of Tar Heel Monthly and Tar Heels Today and a columnist on GoHeels.com. He is author of seven books about Carolina basketball. Adam lives in Cary with his wife, Jennifer, and four children.

"Woody Durham is the epitome of a professional broadcaster, who just so happened to also love the Tar Heels as much as he did his craft. He prepared for each game as if it were the national championship and spoke about each player and coach with an enthusiasm that connected them to his listeners in a unique way. Woody helped bring the Tar Heels to life for generations of Carolina fans." Roy Williams

Woody helped bring the Tar Heels to life for generations of Carolina fans." Roy Williams

"Carolina has a knack for developing legends, albeit Dean Smith or Michael Jordan. But there is another one that all Tar Heel faithfuls should celebrate-- Woody Durham. He is the ultimate pro's pro. I admire him beyond words." Jim Nantz

"Woody Durham is one of the true greats in broadcasting. I know someone will always broadcast Carolina's games, but Woody will always be the voice of the Tar Heels. I'm proud to call him a friend." Jay Bilas

"Woody Durham had a unique passion for North Carolina sports. He was Mr. Loyalty, and this book clearly provides the details of his love affair with UNC!" Dick Vitale

Book Description John F. Blair, Publisher. Hardcover. Condition: New. 272 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 5.9in. x 1.0in.From 1971 to his retirement in 2011, Woody Durham was the Voice of the Tar Heels, the radio play-by-play man for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our State magazine once said: To his listeners, he has been a faceless passenger in a car, the audio to a muted television, or the man inside the earplugs. To his listeners, hes what powder blue sounds like. Even in Kenan Stadium or the Dean Smith Center, hundreds of fans listened to the radio at the games so Woody could tell them what was really happening on the field or the court. In this autobiography, Woody takes the reader on a nostalgic stroll down memory lane - from his descriptions of a sleepy Franklin Street in Chapel Hill and the days of football legend Choo Choo Justice to the enormous changes in college sports and how they are covered to his dozens of behind-the-scenes stories about the coaches and players he worked with during his tenure. An appendix offers Woodys thoughts on every football and basketball player he covered who has an honored jersey at UNC. As coauthor Adam Lucas describes in his acknowledgments: This book is about Woodys life, but for many of us, its also about an era of Tar Heel sports - one that we heard through him. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9780895875778
