About this title

Synopsis:

The Glory of Washington: The People and Events That Shaped the Husky Athletics Tradition is a handsome coffee table book about the history of Washington athletics. The authors are Jim Daves, Washington's Media Relations Director, and Tom Porter, retired Executive Vice President of Bank of America and National Chair of the $54 million Campaign for the Student Athlete.

The Glory of Washington is the first book to capture the spirit and tradition of the Huskies' storied and diverse program. Its pages chronicle over 112 years of Husky history, featuring not only records and individual and team accomplishments but also perspective and insight into the extraordinary athletes and coaches who created the history. It includes over 650 stories on over 1500 individuals and teams and more than 400 photographs.

For each year, the book features a:

* Husky Moment - the most significant athletic event of the year
* Husky Legend - a distinguished athlete, coach or team
* Husky Highlight - a memorable game or event and its significance in Husky history
* Husky Spotlight - another great athlete or event for the year
* Husky List - Husky records, Olympic medalists, world record holders, and individual achievements
* Husky Lore - information of non-athletic activities that impacted the university's development and some Husky trivia.

Also included in the book, for the first time anywhere, is a complete list of over 6000 Washington letter winners, Husky Hall of Fame members, and Olympic medalists and participants who attended UW.

The Glory of Washington is delightful reading and is a perfect gift for a family member, a friend, a client, and a valued associate.
