NBPRA MEMBER MIKE GLENN TO BE INDUCTED INTO MVC ATHLETICS HALL OF FAME

August 9, 2014

Congratulations to NBRPA member Mike Glenn who will be one of six people inducted into the Missouri Valley Conference Athletics Hall of Fame on March 6, 2015.

Glenn played college basketball at Southern Illinois University from 1973 to 1977 and was named MVC Player of the Year in 1976. After college ball, Glenn was drafted by the Chicago Bulls and went on to play 10 NBA seasons for the Buffalo Braves, New York Knicks, Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks.

After his playing career ended, Glenn stayed involved with the NBA, working as the Atlanta Hawks’ color commentator from 1992 to 2005. Glenn also runs the Mike Glenn All-Star Basketball Camp for the Hearing-Impaired, a free basketball camp for deaf athletes. The first of its kind, the camp is enjoyed by as many as 120 athletes each summer.

Equally accomplished on and off the basketball court, Glenn has researched and written four published books and travels around the country to promote literacy, academic achievement and history. Glenn is one of the nation’s most renowned African American History book collectors and he shares his artifacts through traveling exhibits and lectures.

Roger Phegley, Roger Counsil, D.A. Weibring, Linda Dollar and Joe Mitch will also be inducted into the MVC Hall of Fame with Glenn this March.
