Patrick Dowdall

Raised in Anaconda, Montana, the author is a graduate of Notre Dame, Harvard Graduate School and Harvard Law School. He has been a practicing attorney in major law firms in New York, Chicago and Boston and an entrepreneurial businessman and has written and spoken extensively on legal and business matters.  He also has served on the boards of non-profits and an industry-wide professional and trade association. For the past 31 years, he has lived with his wife in Wellesley, Massachusetts where they raised three sons, all Notre Dame graduates. Since the age of six, he has played basketball—ranging from high school competition to senior games and pick-up in a variety of formats, including a group he founded 25 years ago, Over the Hill.

"Top marks! Pat's book is about a basketball player's love of the game, the global neighborhoods that a hoop and court can create and a life fully lived with passion and joy." — Jack Haffey
