An Unbreakable Bond: The Brotherhood of Maurice Stokes and Jack Twyman is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
The book, written by Saint Francis assistant professor of communications Pat Farabaugh, chronicles the life of Red Flash legend Maurice Stokes. It also details the selflessness and compassion demonstrated by Stokes' teammate and friend, Jack Twyman.
Twyman became Stokes' legal guardian - and worked tirelessly to raise money for his friend's medical bills - following an accident in a 1958 National Basketball Association game that left Maurice paralyzed and under hospital care until his death in 1970.
Farabaugh served as sports information director at Saint Francis from 1999 to 2005. The book's release coincides with the 60th anniversary of the Red Flash men's basketball team's first National Invitation Tournament appearance (1953-54).
