ABOUT A Titan of a Man
AUTHOR Paula Hines Lonergan
PURCHASE Paperback (1st ed.)

Paul "Doc" Hines was a well-loved and respected wining football and basketball coach in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area throughout the sixties, seventies, and eighties. His character was featured in the "Disney" movie, “Remember The Titans.” Paula Hines Lonergan has written this poignant memoir of her father, whom she loved dearly, and appreciated the lessons she learned from him including the value of family, the importance of perseverance, and self-love. This is a fascinating story about life and football, and a touching portrait of a father and his daughter, re-written in a fresh and entertaining voice.
