Nearly seven-feet-tall with flaming red hair, Kevin Laue commands attention simply by walking on stage. His story, however, never fails to hold that attention for audiences of all ages.
The first player missing a limb to play NCAA Division 1 basketball, he overcame the early death of his father, a challenging home environment and a legion of critics to become one of the top high school basketball players in his home state of California while earning a scholarship to join the Manhattan College Jaspers.
Employing a mixture of humor, audience participation, and a uniquely strong delivery, he tells the story of a life so extraordinary, it was chronicled in the 2013 Oscar-qualifying documentary Long Shot. The Kevin Laue Story.
