Wildcat Wednesday: Reggie Hanson Book Signing
Come celebrate back to school the right way! With #BBN! royalty and $5 Quesadillas!
You’re invited to a special appearance by former UK men’s basketball player Reggie Hanson as he shares his personal stories, insights and real-life lessons learned during his playing and coaching career.
After leading Pulaski County High School to the 1986 KHSAA State Championship, Hanson went on to star at the University of Kentucky, scoring 1,167 points and earning All-SEC honors in 1990 and 1991. After his professional basketball career, Hanson turned to coaching and spent seven years on Coach Tubby Smith’s UK staff, twice being named one of the Top 25 recruiters in the country by Rivals.com and helping the Wildcats land the #1 recruiting class in 2004.
Hanson’s new book entitled “10 Life Lessons: Learned as a Student-Athlete” discusses the different experiences he encountered on campus and how they would ultimately shape his life. Perseverance, mental toughness, leadership, preparation and discipline were just a few of the many traits he learned during his time at UK and the book is intended to better prepare current student-athletes for their college and professional experiences. These same lessons can also be applied to any individual seeking direction in their personal life and career.
Copies of the book will be available for $15 and Hanson will personally autograph each book purchased.
