This is a memoir recounting the life and career of the first person to break Jesse Owens record in the 100 meter dash. It is written for young adults and. it tells of Williams work as a teacher and a coach. A delightful snapshot of how Coach Willie Williams has motivated others to be strong, responsible, generous, respectful and successful.
Sprinting Through Life is not only the story of a consummate athlete and coach, but more of a life begun in poverty, love encouragement, and ambition—the unselfish kind—and continues to serve and inspire. This is the story of a true African American hero.
