Sports Genius is the most ambitious and unique sports book in recent memory, with more than 60 original and newly illustrated illustrations and over 200 pages of text.
The book is available for purchase and is the first book from McKnight and his team since Sports Genius was first published in 1998.
McKnight’s Sports Genius tells the story of the legendary former Pittsburgh Steelers and National Football League player Steve McQueens rise to stardom.
McQueen’s rise to fame began in 1977, when he joined the Steelers as a rookie and made his NFL debut as an undrafted rookie in Week 3 of the 1979 season.
He had just completed his freshman year at Northwestern University and had just won the Heisman Trophy.
But that season, McQue, a six-foot-two, 225-pound linebacker, went down with a torn ACL in his left knee.
He missed the rest of the season, and his career was over.
But in 1984, he went back to the Steelers and became the team’s starting outside linebacker.
The Steelers’ first-round pick in 1984 was a versatile defensive end named Chris Hinton.
McQuen went on to play in eight seasons for the Steelers, earning multiple Pro Bowl nods and leading the team to five Super Bowl appearances.
He also led the team in sacks, interceptions, forced fumbles and forced fakes.
He led the Steelers to a championship in 1984 and played in all 16 games in the 1985 Super Bowl.
McQueen, a former NFL defensive tackle, retired as a player in 2002 and became a coach in the NFL, and the two were friends.
He went on the NFL sideline in the mid-1990s, and in 2010 he joined forces with his friend Steve Martin to form the sports marketing company McQueons Sports Marketing Group.
That same year, the two brothers began producing McQueas Sports Marketing Book, which they renamed Sports Genius.
In Sports Genius McQueen is joined by Martin, a sportswriter, and author Michael Schofield.
