Going back five years, immediately after the Pittsburgh Riverhounds completed a monumental come-from-behind 6-5 win against its rivals, Harrisburg City Islanders on May 30, 2015, I knew that it was a special, transcendent moment.
In the few years since that night, and after closely watching the club endure the ups and downs of being a third and second division professional soccer franchise for the good part of the past two decades, but especially in the Highmark Stadium era, I always felt there was an important story to tell.
I’ve always wanted to write a book, and this became a project that I wanted to make happen.
This winter, I finally got down to business, interviewed numerous folks involved, but much of the narrative revolves around the time I spent talking and collaborating with Rob Vincent, Kevin Kerr and Danny Earls, three key players on that 2015 Riverhounds team. This trio really contribute to the heart and soul of the story.
The book is just about finished, and I am very excited to finally share this with everyone very soon. It will be available for purchase as a paperback and as an e-Book, with order details and information available in the coming weeks,
Look for it to be available on the 5th Anniversary of the ‘Miracle on the Mon’ match, which will be Saturday, May 30, 2020.
In addition, I am also pleased to share and excited to have collaborated with Danny Earls on this project, as he will be providing the art work for the book’s cover, which you can see a preview here in his Intagram post.
