Franklin native Dan Collins will be at Books Unlimited on Saturday, Oct. 12 to sign copies of his book, "The ACC Basketball Book of Fame," a book praising the greatest players in conference history.
As a longtime sports columnist for the Winston- Salem Journal, Collins has covered every ACC tournament since 1974. Throughout his career, he has been exposed to some of the greatest players to enter college and professional basketball. Collins' history with the ACC also makes him the perfect person to develop the first ever ACC Hall of Fame. To start, Collins developed an objective system by collecting and assigning numerical values to All-ACC voting and other awards and accolades. But what resulted is more than just a list of players. Each player profile is filled with fun facts and stories that will surprise and delight even the most devout ACC fan. Collectively, the profiles provide a wellrounded history of the conference, celebrating its past while setting the scene for its newest additions.
