Otis Wilson - Book Signing
Led by stars like Walter Payton, Jim McMahon, Mike Singletary, William "Refrigerator" Perry, head coach Mike Ditka, and defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan, the Chicago Bears in the 1980s were an NFL powerhouse. As anyone who's seen "The Super Bowl Shuffle" surely knows, they were also an unforgettable group of characters. Otis Wilson, the Bears starting outside linebacker, was right in the center of the action, and in this book, Wilson provides a closer look at the great moments and personalities that made this era legendary. Readers will meet the players, coaches, and management and share in their moments of triumph and defeat. Be a fly on the wall as Wilson recounts stories from those days in Chicago, including the 1985 Super Bowl-winning season. If These Walls Could Talk: Chicago Bears will make fans a part of the team's storied history.
Chicago's first round draft pick in 1980 out of Louisville, Otis Wilson starred at outside linebacker for the feared 1980s Bears defenses. An intimidating pass rusher, Wilson had 10.5 sacks for the 1985 Super Bowl champions. The two-time Pro Bowler finished his career with the L.A. Raiders in 1989 and was named to the All-Madden Century Team.
Otis will be signing his new book at Volumes Bookcafe on Sept. 12th at 7pm. Come meet Otis Wilson!
