Author Bill Elder Interviewed on Kentucky Public Radio

Tuesday, August 14th, 2007 by Lyndsey

Celebrated coach and author Bill Elder was recently interviewed by Dan Modlin of Kentucky Public Radio about his new memoir, All Guts and No Glory.

Modlin asserted that the book provides a unique insight into the challenges faced by athletes in that time, saying that “small college athletics doesn’t get the credit it deserves for its role in promoting racial integration during the 1970s” a view that is certainly captivated in All Guts and No Glory.

When asked if the title of the book itself was indicative of the experiences he had with his team, Elder responded, “Yes, at a Junior College we operated under the national radar screen unlike our counterparts in the NCAA division, and it was about the courage of the players and there really wasn’t a lot of glory in it.”
