Library Zoom Book Event with Steve Robertson

Winston County Library Will Hold A Book Event with author Steve Robertson Via Zoom on November 13, 2020 beginning at 10:30 AM. See flyer below for instructions.

Alpha Dawgs Synopsis

From bestselling author, Steve Robertson comes his next explosive book. Alpha Dawgs: More Dawg Tales from the Rivalry with Ole Miss picks up where Stark Villains left off, but with a heavy dose of controversy. Stories from the rivalry between the Bulldogs of Mississippi State and the Rebels of Ole Miss are told as only Steve Robertson can. The book is jam-packed with hot-button issues, previously unpublished missives, interviews with legends, riveting history, and much more.

Alpha Dawgs exposes prominent Mississippians for their role in promoting segregation and attempting to prevent the Bulldog’s participation in the 1963 “Game of Change.” A former player reveals how the basketball team successfully beat the establishment and defiantly played in the game.

These pages chronicle the firing of Allyn McKeen—the best football coach in MSU history. Bulldog great, Rafael Palmeiro, talks about why he chose MSU. And so much more.

Alpha Dawgs delivers tales from the rivalry that fans of both schools will enjoy, although Mississippi State wins every chapter.
