Steve and Lorri Zeller (parents of Luke, Tyler, and Cody Zeller) have written a parenting book full of lessons about raising their three boys. Luke, Tyler, and Cody each finished at the top of their high school class, won Indiana’s famed Mr. Basketball award, went on to play basketball at Division I universities, and play in the NBA. Steve and Lorri provide an inside look at the principles they implemented in their household and share transparent and entertaining anecdotes about their parenting journey. The book alternates between Steve and Lorri’s voice and includes comments from each of their boys throughout the manuscript, making it unlike any other book in the market today. The book is recommended for both parents and basketball enthusiasts, particularly in the state of Indiana.
"Steve and Lorri should be THE role model for parenting in today's basketball culture."
- Roy Williams, University of North Carolina men's basketball coach
"I grew up disciplined in journalism to never say never. I repeat, about the Zellers: never, anything like them."
- Bob Hammel, Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame, author of the foreword
"Theirs is an incredible story of a faithful, tight-knit family—a family that had a unique impact on a state that is crazy about hoops."
- Brad Stevens, Boston Celtics head coach and former Butler University head men's basketball coach
