The Miracle of St. Anthony: A Season with Coach Bob Hurley and Basketballs Most Improbable Dynasty by Adrian Wojnarowski

In a city mired in endless decay, where the youth suffer through all the horrors of urban blight, hope comes in a most unassuming form: a tiny brick schoolhouse run by two Felician nuns where a singular basketball genius takes teenagers from the mean streets of Jersey City and turns them into champions on the hardcourt. Coach Bob Hurley had been working miracles at St. Anthony High School for over thirty years, winning state and national championships and offering his players rescue from their surroundings through college scholarships, when he met his most dysfunctional team yet. In The Miracle of St. Anthony Adrian Wojnarowski follows Hurley through a gripping and heartrending season as he struggles to lead a troubled team to glory through his unparalleled understanding of the game and his ceaseless determination to see no more children lost to these streets. In The Miracle of St. Anthony, acclaimed sports journalist Adrian Wojnarowski follows Hurley through a gripping and heartrending season, as he struggles to lead a troubled team to glory through his unparalleled understanding of the game and his ceaseless determination to see no more children lost to the city streets. Acclaim for The Miracle of St. Anthony: It takes two ingredients to make a book special: a great story and a great storyteller. The Miracle of St. Anthony has both. Bob Hurley is a remarkable coach; Adrian Wojnarowski is his equal as a writer. JOHN FEINSTEIN, BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF A SEASON ON THE BRINK Takes you through this miracle season where this high school basketball team didnt have the greatest talent but somehow came out on top . . . [Coach Hurley] is dedicated to these citykids and helping them overcome the obstacles that the city can offer. A lot of his lessons are not about basketball, but about life, and doing things the right way. BILL RAFTERY, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL Compelling. Chicago Tribune A classic. Boston Globe Astonishing New York Post Hard to put down. The Washington Post
