Walk-On Warrior: Drive, Discipline, and the Will to Win
A basketball book like no other. The incredible first-hand account of a season at Marquette, a summer with Rick Majerus, and a court-side seat with the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks.
Small town. Undersized. Not enough talent. John Willkom heard it all as a teen basketball player growing up in rural Wisconsin. Despite the odds, John dedicated his life to the game, an arduous journey that challenged the very core of even the most disciplined. As John's hard work lands him amongst basketball's elite, it is the workouts, the people, and the behind-the-scenes interactions that not only change his skill set but how he lives his life. Both heartfelt and funny, Walk-On Warrior takes you into the mind of an athlete from John's perspective. Take a journey that will reignite your passion for life, challenge your perspectives on toughness and fear, and ultimately, inspire you to maximize your talent.
