Ray Sanchez, a longtime sports writer and columnist in El Paso, will discuss and sign copies of his newest book, “The Good, the Bad and the Funny of El Paso Sports History.”
The book signing is being done in conjunction with the current exhibit, “Miner Strong: A Century of Sports at UTEP,” part of the Centennial Exhibit Series honoring UTEP’s Centennial Celebration. The exhibit will be on display through March 18.
Ray Sanchez has covered El Paso Sports since the 1950s as a writer and editor for the El Paso Herald-Post, then as a columnist for the El Paso Times and El Paso Inc. He also has written a number of books on different El Paso sports topics, including, “Don Haskins: The Bear Facts.” His newest book, “The Good, the Bad and the Funny of El Paso Sports History,” was released in November, 2013. Mr. Sanchez has received numerous awards for his coverage and was also a consultant for the feature film, “Glory Road,” chronicling the 1966 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship for the Texas Western College Miners.

About the exhibit:
Designed in conjunction with the UTEP Athletics Department, “Miner Strong: A Century of Sports at UTEP,” showcases some of the most notable victories in the school’s athletics programs, such as the historic 1966 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship and track star Bob Beamon’s record-breaking long jump at the 1968 Olympics. The exhibit also pays homage to the late Basketball Coach Don Haskins and standout athletes who left their mark on the UTEP playing fields and beyond.
