Longshot: The Adventures of a Deaf Fundamentalist Mormon Kid and His Journey to the NBA
Lance Allred | ISBN: 0061718580 | PDF | 267 pages | May 2009 | 1 MB
Lance Allred was probably the last person you'd expect to make it in professional sports. Not only did he grow up on a polygamist commune in Montana, he struggles with obsessive-compulsive disorder. If those hurdles to the NBA don't seem large enough, Lance is also deaf.
Self-deprecating, witty, and wholly original, Longshot is the unlikely story of an unlikely athlete, who despite these factors and a lot of setbacks along the way, finally realized his dream of playing in the NBA, becoming the first legally deaf player in the league.
