More About the Author

Ken Mink has spent more than 50 years as journalist/author.

A Kentucky native, he retired from active newspaper work in 1998 but continued to serve as a journalist, editing an online magazine. Ken Mink lives in Knoxville, Tn., semi-retired after a 48-year career as a journalist. He is editor of the travel magazine, The Travelling Adventurer (www.travellingadventurer.com), and writes freelance articles for newspapers and magazines. Other daily newspapers he worked for include the Lexington, Ky., Herald-Leader, the Dayton, Ohio, Daily News, the Bristol, Va., Herald-Courier, Kingsport, Tn., Times-News, Harrisonburg, Va., Daily News-Record and the Hopkinsville, Ky., New Era.

He is the author of several books, including So, You Want Your Kid to be a Sports Superstar, Teen Gunslinger, A Bloody Trail, Nightmare on Black Mountain, Serpent on the Cross, The Mailman Murders, 222-0: The World's Zaniest College Football Game, The Cola Conspiracy,Hoops Dreamer: The Ken Mink Story, A Tear for Sarah, Sewanee's Iron Men: America's Most Amazing College Football Team, Men Who Pee on Trees, The World's Greatest Sermons,Geezer Wars. World's Greatest Speeches, Terror on the Appalachian Trail and A Tale of Two Mansions.


But he is perhaps best known as the World's Oldest College Basketball Player. He was unjustly expelled from college in 1956 while playing on his college team at Lees Junior College, Jackson, Ky. After retiring in 2007 he got the urge to try to return to college basketball at age 73 to finish his career. Incredibly, he made the team at Roane State College, Harriman, Tn., and went on to play in seven games and scored in three, setting several world records. He was featured on numerous national TV shows and was highlighted in hundreds of newspapers and magazines and Ripley's Believe It Or Not. He has signed with a Hollywood producer to do a movie based on his life.
