How Far Do You Wanna Go?
The True Story of the Man Who Turned Sixteen Inner City Kids
Into a Team of Champions
by Ramon "Tru" Dixon and Dave Aromatorio
A heartwarming, true story of inner city kids locked into dead-end futures; many are homeless and members of gangs by the age of ten. Then they meet "Tru" Dixon, who pulled himself out of the same place to which they are condemned. Tru forms the nucleus of a team from streetwise kids who have never played before, but go on to become real-life champions.
