James R. Welke, a Chicago native with a degree from the University of Illinois at Springfield currently living in Streamwood, Illinois, has completed his new book “The International Football League”: a tale of deception and high stakes gambling in the world of pro football.

James writes, “Rob McKenna is a sportswriter for newspaper in Chicago’s suburbs. He is concerned mainly with local high school sports until one day he sees an International Football League game on TV. While watching, he sees plays and play calling he suspects are not the result of players and coaches who are not up to NFL standards but as the result of games being fixed.

Chicago Blazers quarterback Mark Purhl knows all too well the IFL’s secret, but the pressure of having to keep the secret is too much for him to bear, and he seeks solace the only way he knows how.”

Published by Page Publishing, James R. Welke’s engrossing book is a thought-provoking story of fraud and corruption in professional sports.
