Last year, the Eagles of NC Central took the college basketball world by storm with the best season in school history – including an MEAC title and the school’s first-ever trip to the NCAAs.

But for head coach LeVelle Moton, the challenge of building on that success comes second to the challenge of inspiring young people to follow his example of overcoming adversity.

Next month, Moton will publish a memoir entitled “The Worst Times Are The Best Times,” co-written with journalist Edward G. Robinson III. Some of the proceeds from the book will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of America.

Coach Moton joined WCHL’s Aaron Keck on the air Monday to discuss the book.
