Champions In God’s Eyes: The Ironmen of Eagle River

“Jim Carberry’s new book is a game-winner”

Whatcom Hoops August-30-2023

Award-winning journalist Jim Carberry’s first novel is a coming-of-age and coming-to-faith story that will resonate with readers of all ages. It is the inspiring journey of a high school freshman as he deals with personal tragedy and finding his place in the world. Along the way, he experiences first love, forms lifelong bonds of friendship, and confronts prejudice and hate—all while leading his basketball team on a thrilling run to the state tournament.

Here’s what some of the characters from Jim’s imaginative world of Eagle River, Washington, have to say:

“It would be a crime if this book isn’t made into a blockbuster movie!”

Police Chief Ben Mitchell

“The best basketball book I’ve ever read. A must-read for every player and parent.”

Sean Royceson, Eagle River boys basketball coach

An exciting sports book with a positive message for those who need it. I give it five stars (and wish I’d written it).

Dominic Denman, Eagle River Gazette sports reporter
