Former Kansas walk-on raising funds for children's book,Fieldhouse

Friday February 27th, 2015

The 1995 Kansas Jayhawks team had five future NBA players, including Raef LaFrentz and Jacque Vaughn, on the roster, but a much lesser known name cracked the starting lineup for the Big 8 championship game against Oklahoma State that season, Scott Novosel.

Novosel is now turning his journey from an undersized kid with a big dream to one of the biggest stages in college sports into a children's book called Fieldhouse with the help of artist Sam Sharpe.

Former Jayhawks walk-on Novosel says he has been trying to turn his life into an inspirational story for kids since that day in 1995, and now you can help him reach that goal through his new Kickstarter campaign.

The pair is looking to raise $15,000 to take the book to press and hope to have the book shipped by November of this year.
