Movie Review: The Long Green Line

This motivational documentary follows York High School in its quest for their 24th Illinois state cross country title.  It explores the dynamics of team running as well as the ability to respond to adversities.  Under the leadership of the legendary Joe Newton, the team tries its best to continue the tradition established in cross country.

I highly recommend this movie to any cross country runner or coach.  A few points I took away from the movie include:

  • Empowering the runners to mold their season; and
  • Treating all runners with the same respect and consideration whether they are the #1 runner or the #50 runner.
