For the past 40 years, author Tom Price has been in Columbia, South Carolina recording the stories that have made the Gamecocks one of America's greatest collegiate sports teams. Whether it's tales of football, basketball, soccer, baseball, golf, track and field, or any one of the Gamecocks' many other sports, this book captures it all through engaging anecdotes gleaned from the author s many years of personal experience and interviews with athletes and others connected with the university.
