“No Holds Barred: Frank Cheek's Life Story”: a wonderful inspiration of one’s faith journey from the hoods to the championships. “No Holds Barred: Frank Cheek's Life Story” is the creation of published
authors Tom Trepiak, a retired athletics administrator and the board chair of Mercy’s Haven; and Frank Cheek, a brilliant speaker and Trepiak’s friend and former co-worker.

Trepiak and Cheek share, “A childhood growing up in Newport, Kentucky, also known as ‘Sin City USA’, taught Frank Cheek that the first punch is the winning punch most of the time. He spent half his time with the ‘good’ kids who played sports and half his time with the ‘so-called hoods’ who were always in the middle of trouble. His dad loved work and discipline and his mom loved sports. He found himself at the crossroads after graduating from high school. He knew the only future in Newport for him would center on trouble and violence. So he joined the Marine Corps. Sports, hard work, humor, and occasionally throwing the first punch got him through the Corps. It wasn’t until the Lord got a hold of him that Frank could let go of the need to throw the first punch. But he held onto sports, hard work and humor to forge a coaching career at the high school and college level that has placed him in five Halls of Fame. His long career at Humboldt State included 22 years coaching wrestling and 25 years coaching softball. Fifteen of his teams finished in the nation’s Top 10. His path from a ‘so-called hood’ to a multiple national champion is a story of how a life dedicated to Jesus is a life of redemption, grace, humility and victory.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Tom Trepiak and Frank Cheek’s new book is a heartfelt reveal in the life of one man as he retells the key moments in his life that helped him shape who he is now to bring motivation and enlightenment to readers, young and old.
