Relentless
From Redshirt to the Rock of the Jayhawks

By Travis Releford, Matt Fulks

Every team has at least one. That one player who's called on to make something happen. Throughout his career on the University of Kansas basketball team, Travis Releford was that guy. So much so, in fact, that on Senior Night 2013, head coach Bill Self told the Allen Fieldhouse crowd that Releford was the rock of our team. 

In his new book, Relentless, Releford candidly describes the hard work it took on the court and in the classroom to become the Rock of the Jayhawks. 

Growing up in the inner-city sometimes without food on the table, he became one of the most highly recruited basketball players in Kansas City history. He went from attending a predominantly white, private high school, to becoming a father while in college, to helping the Jayhawks reach the national championship game in 2012. The book is a must-read for any fan wanting an inside look at major college basketball. A great gift for any fan of the Kansas Jayhawks.


Paperback; 240 Pages


AUTHOR INFORMATION:

Travis Releford went to the University of Kansas as a highly-touted basketball recruit out of the Kansas City area. After being the odd man out during his freshman season, Releford accepted a redshirt during his second year. For the next three seasons, Releford became the player that everyone anticipated him being: a gritty defensive specialist who could carry the Jayhawks when needed. He became so valuable by the end of his senior year that coach Bill Self called Releford the "rock" of the Jayhawks. Following his senior year, Releford was a second team All-Big 12 performer and selected as a member of the Big 12's All-Defensive Team. Releford is currently pursuing a professional basketball career in Belgium.

Matt Fulks, who grew up in the Kansas City area, began his journalism career at Lipscomb University after his baseball career was cut short due to a lack of ability. He's the author/co-author of nearly 20 books, including "For Jayhawks Fans Only" and "A Good Place to Stop" (with Max Falkenstien). He lives in the Kansas City area with his wife Libby, their three kids and a Weimeraner named after Elvis. Sort of.
