Within minutes the man who had led the nation in scoring and rebounding as a junior, and who had proudly boasted of being the strongest man alive, was dead. Heart of a Lion is the story of Hank Gathers, a young man who dared to dream while growing up in “the worst slum in America.”

“Hank Gathers was an extraordinary player. He was a young man who dared to dream in a place where dreams go to die. Hank’s dream ended tragically but his teammates carried on in his honor. Together they provided one of the greatest stories in NCAA tournament history. Hank has been gone 20 years but, the dream is alive.” – Jim Nantz, CBS Sports.
