Those of you who listened in to the KSR radio show when Mark Krebs was a guest already know this, but if you didn’t, one of our favorite former walk ons decided to write a book. And write a book he did. In what seems like one of the fastest turn around for deciding to write a book and getting it published, Krebs’ story is set to be released October 1st. A description from the facebook page…
Beyond a Dream is not simply about basketball but overcoming obstacles to reach far beyond limitations. It’s not merely about statistics or winning percentage but recognizing the value of life. It captures the amount of fight in a family, the courage of a mother, and the joy of chasing dreams.
Of course, in Beyond a Dream, Mark Krebs answers many questions about the last four years of Kentucky Basketball that are of interest to so many fans, helping them understand the differences between the three coaches. He offers a firsthand account of what life was like earning a spot in a Division I program, withstanding the daily grind of a student-athlete, and riding the rollercoaster from an NIT-bound team to being the #1 team in the nation.
Beyond a Dream also chronicles the amazing fight of Terri Krebs, Mark’s mom, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2001 and was given 9 months to live. Not willing to accept that fate, Terri, with the help of Mark and the entire Krebs family, survived through 390 chemotherapy treatments and 7 surgeries. Beyond a Dream details her amazing fight to achieve every goal that she set — including celebrating Senior Day at center court of Rupp Arena with her son, Mark.
Beyond a Dream is an inspiration to anyone searching for a reason to chase beyond their own dreams.
Congratulations Mark. I can’t wait to read it.
