Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

While many of his peers began their careers as farmers and factory workers, Leo Florian Houck became a boxing sensation at age 14, enabling him to support his mother and six siblings after his father's death. Houck's career really took off in 1911 with a 20-round victory over world-class welterweight Harry Lewis in Paris. During 1913 Leo became the leading middleweight contender in America.

This biography details Houck's early years in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, his long career in the ring--including 200 fights--and his 27 years as Penn State's legendary boxing coach.

About the Author

Randy L. Swope writes biographies of eminent and honorable Pennsylvanians who have "set the bar" in their chosen professions and personal lives. He lives in Mt. Gretna, Pennsylvania.
