Gone Pro: North Carolina by Tim Jackson provides a comprehensive look at the University of North Carolina athletes who made it to the top of their professions including all the big names from recent generations featuring sports superstars such as Vince Carter, Mia Hamm, Michael Jordan, B. J. Surhoff, and Lawrence Taylor. It also looks at some who were never as well known, such as Charlie ?Choo Choo" Justice, and some who were widely recognized a generation ago but whose stars have faded over the years. Exploring athletes' places in Carolina history, Gone Pro also examines their professional careers and how they fared at the highest levels of their sports. This rich history will make North Carolina residents and UNC alumni beam with pride at the amazing number of professionals who hail from the state's flagship school.
"What sets this book apart from other college sports titles, though, is how it goes beyond these athletes' time at Chapel Hill." —The Asheville Post
