Dr. Richard L. Jacob, a professor in Medaille’s Division of Management and Leadership and director of the College’s sport management program, recently authored a book about Buffalo Bandits lacrosse legend John Tavares. Titled “Soul to the Goal,” the book chronicles the life and career of the man many call the finest athlete in Buffalo sports history. Dr. Jacob will be joined by Tavares for a book signing from 4 to 5 p.m. on April 29 at Soho Burger Bar (64 W. Chippewa St.). The book is available for purchase now at the Sabres Store at KeyBank Center, and will be available soon on Amazon.com.

Professor Tyler Welsh, Medaille’s newspaper faculty adviser and Alumni Engagement Coordinator, also designed the cover of the book.

The Bandits’ regular season comes to an end that evening, April 29, as the team takes on the Toronto Rock at 7:30 p.m. at KeyBank Center.

Dr. Jacob has been a teacher and coach at Medaille since 1995.
