Coach Mealy has new book published
Head Coach Todd Mealy's new book "Legendary Locals of Harrisburg" is officially on bookshelves Monday, September 22.
Mealy's book is part of Arcadia Publishing's Legendary Locals series that celebrates people who have made a memorable impact on their community throughout its history.

Mealy, who has his team spend MLK holidays doing community service in the Millersville community and traditionally sends football players into the elementary schools to encourage leisure reading, writes, "these profiles of real lives and real heroes show us that we all have contributed to the development of our own communities."
For football fans, the book features a sports chapter that includes some of Central Pennsylvania's greatest coaches, players, and sportswriters.
This is the third book that Mealy has had published. Mealy will appear on abc27's "Good Day PA" at noon on October 2 to discuss the book.
