What's Your Number?

The Stories Behind The Retired Numbers At Arizona’s High Schools.

Do you know anyone who’s had their high school number retired in Arizona? Do you ever wonder why?

After writing Who Is Gym? the reoccurring sight of retired numbers at Arizona’s high schools finally pushed Scott Hanson’s curiosity past the tipping point.

He found that today’s high school athletes and many of the fans, teachers, coaches and athletic directors at high schools today have no idea who or why their gyms and fields have retired numbers hanging there.

So he began researching the who and why high schools in Arizona had retired anybody’s number in any sport. What he discovered were some fascinating stories about some of Arizona’s greatest legendary high school athletes.

What’s Your Number? is a natural sequel to Hanson’s first book, Who Is Gym?
