About the Author

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

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.

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 numerous world records. He was featured on numerous national TV shows and was highlighted in hundreds of newspapers and magazines. He has signed with a Hollywood producer to do a movie based on his life.
