“‘No Doubting Thomas: “Hawg Whisperer” My Arkansas Memoirs’ is the American Writing Awards finalist for Sports Book of the year 2022,” writes Thomas. “It is my recollection of three years as the first starting African American (black) quarterback at the University of Arkansas, under legendary Athletic Director Frank Broyles and Head Football Coach Ken Hatfield. As a starter, from 1985-1987 in the defunct Southwest Conference, the Razorbacks appeared in consecutive Bowl Games (The Holiday, The Orange, and The Liberty Bowls) and during this span accumulated more victories than all Razorback Quarterbacks in Arkansas football history. The book shares stories of built friendships with teammates and bonds with Hall of Fame Coaches, Nolan Richardson and Norm DeBriyn. Included are stories of the ups and downs of the collegiate experience, resiliency, and overcoming racial bias and stereotypes.”
Published by Audiobook Network, author Greg Thomas with Leland Barclay’s new audiobook is the culmination of four sit-down interviews, numerous phone conversations, and one video call between Leland Barclay and Greg Thomas over the course of fourteen months and provides Thomas with the opportunity to share his life as a Razorback in his own words from his perspective.
Through his writings, listeners will discover incredible insights and moments along Thomas’s college journey that forever shaped his future, and the challenges that defined him from within and outside of his football program.

Audiobooks are the fastest growing segment in the digital publishing industry. According to The Infinite Dial 2019, 50% of Americans age 12 and older have listened to an audiobook. This huge growth can be partly attributed to increased listening in cars, which surpassed the home as the #1 audiobook listening location in the 2019 survey. Smart speaker proliferation also bodes well for future listening growth and more mainstream listening.
