Rich Hoyt documents one of the great basketball stories ever told in Finishing the Job:
Rob Hertzel was a 1981 graduate of The Summit Country Day School in Cincinnati, Ohio. During Rob’s junior season, Summit lost a heartbreaking overtime game in the 1980 Ohio Class A Basketball State Championship.
Rob was diagnosed with stage-four colon cancer in February 2010. Rob would go on to live his life for the next 21 months much like he lived the previous 46 years, with a passionate zest that inspired those around him. He served up daily motivation to hundreds of people through an online blog, until he succumbed to his battle with cancer on November 11, 2011.
Rob’s middle child, Holden, was beginning his senior season as the starting center on Summit’s basketball team at the time of his passing. With Rob serving as inspiration for both Holden and the entire team during the 2011-12 season, The Summit Country Day boys’ basketball team went on a magical run to claim their first state championship in program history.
