Featured product / "Trailblazing": Eric Anderson's memoir of coming out as at high school track coach Closets"

Trailblazing, by Eric Anderson

At only 25 years of age, Eric Anderson was near the top of his sport, coaching the cadre of distance runners at Huntington Beach High School in conservative Orange County, Calif. Victory on the track gained Anderson high respect as a coach, but he was hiding the truth from his colleagues and his team: Eric Anderson was gay.

Then he came out. His team was quickly labeled "the fag team" as the respect Anderson had worked for gave way to homophobia, and his runners were taunted, threatened, and even physically assaulted. Yet through it all, they continued to run, to win, and to support their coach.

As Anderson battled for his job and to keep his team running, his athletes, these young trailblazers, stuck by their coach and fought for a cause they were not born into. Trailblazing is the inspiring story of a coach and his team working together for glory against incredible odds and will leave you cheering.
