Letter: Kudos to Rob Hovland

By Staff | Mar 18, 2016

I am writing to congratulate Rob Hovland on his spectacular achievement in the writing of “They Were All Champions.” All I can really say is “Wow”! This book is about so much more than basketball. It is about Rugby, about North Dakota, about pride and the commitment of its people and athletes to excellence. Frankly, I have read few finer books, or books that I enjoyed more. Life is much about experiences, memories and people. Rob’s book brings them to life. It is the colorful and rich history of the players, the coaches, the fans, the city of Rugby and our collective experiences in “basketball as life”. I commend it to each of you. You could not find a more meaningful or appreciated gift for your mother, father, grandparents, sons or daughters. If you’ve got a friend, they would appreciate it too. My best wishes to everyone in and from Rugby. You very much enriched my life, and again, my congratulations to Rob for his dedication, obvious work ethic and talent in producing this beautiful book. He has made Rugby proud. Past, present and future generations will smile with fond memories thank you, Rob. We owe you a deep debt of gratitude for this great achievement. Fly High and Hard, and Far and Free!!!

Very Truly Yours,

Robert V. Bolinske
