9781940056319: The Animal Keepers - The Story of an Unlikely Hero and an Unforgettable Season

The Animal Keepers tells the true story of the Stevens Point High School cross country team and their unforgettable journey through the 1985 season. Joined by first year runner Scott The Animal Longley - a developmentally disabled student who lived in a group home - the year takes an unexpected turn as this most unlikely hero leads them on a quest for a state title. Surrounded by a group of serious and dedicated runners The Animal set out to prove he belonged. Driven by his incredible enthusiasm and never ending optimism the 85 season became a voyage of discovery for Scott, his coach, and his teammates as they worked to assemble a competitive team from a jumble of spare parts. Told from the perspective of a young coach this is a book about running, competing, and team building, but at its center this is the story of a young man with physical, cognitive, and emotional disabilities who loved to run, loved to compete, and most of all loved being part of a team.

About the Author:

Donn Behnke has been the head coach cross country at Stevens Point Area Senior High for 38 seasons. His teams have earned state titles in 1980, 1981, 1983, 1985, 1994, 1997, 1998, 2003, 2008, and 2013 with runner-up finishes in 1982, 1984, 1990, 2001, 2006, 2007, and 2014. This record ties the program for the most state titles in the modern era of Wisconsin High School Cross Country. Donn has also coached 6 individual state champions, two of them, Keith Hanson and Chris Solinsky, went on to become NCAA Division I national champions. Donn has been named Wisconsin cross country coach of the year on 9 occasions and in 2001 the National High School Coaches Association awarded him National Coach of the Year honors.

Review:

"Few books have captured the spirit of cross country running; fewer still have the capacity to move you long after the story has finished its run. Donn Behnke's The Animal Keepers makes good on both counts, and is as timely as it is timeless. It's destined for a good long run." --Chris Lear, author of Running With The Buffaloes

"If you want to learn the real meaning of the word 'team,' buy this book. You'll see what running can teach about life." --Coach Roy Benson, Director Emeritus of NIKE Smoky Mt. and Green Mt. Running Camps

The Animal Keepers is a triumph ... Behnke's prose is straightforward and the book is full of quality details, a testament to Behnke's memory and ability to weave those descriptions in seamlessly. When you find (a story) told as beautifully as this one, you hold on to it. --Jonathan Gault, LetsRun.com
