Summary

In the summer of 1962, the peripatetic and irrepressible Pete Gill was hired on a whim to coach basketball at tiny Ireland High School. There he would accomplish, against enormous odds, one of the great small-town feats in Indiana basketball history. With no starters taller than 5'10", few wins were predicted for the Spuds. Yet, after inflicting brutal preseason conditioning, employing a variety of unconventional motivational tactics, and overcoming fierce opposition, Gill molded the Spuds into a winning team that brought home the town's first and only sectional and regional titles. Relying on narrative strategies of creative nonfiction rather than strict historical rendering, Mike Roos brings to life a colorful and varied cast of characters and provides a compelling account of their struggles, wide-ranging emotions, and triumphs throughout the season.

    FOR DECADES, ATHLETES HAVE BEEN A TARGET for companies selling everything from banned substances to several worthless nutritional products with the hope they will make the di?erence between winning and losing. At the expense of being misled, athletes have su?ered irreparable damage from steroids and hormones as well as the side e?ects experienced from stimulants and tainted dietary supplements. In addition, the tremendous stress of strenuous exercise and its contribution to oxidative stress, in?ammation, fatigue, muscle damage and transient immune suppression sets the stage for viewing the athlete in a very di?erent way.
     
     In THE MISLED ATHLETE, renowned nutritionist Carl Germano, RD, CNS, CDN and his team present a new look at the athlete as a patient and provide a comprehensive plan for addressing the multiple nutritional needs of the athlete beyond excess protein, stimulants and steroids. Germano discusses the link between the stressor of exercise and the importance of proper recovery through diet manipulation, e?ective training techniques, and the use of legitimate nutritional supplements.
     
    THE MISLED ATHLETE gives insight into how the foods athletes eat, which training techniques they use, and how the consumption of certain safe nutritional supplements can successfully address the ravages of intense activity, assist the athlete to recuperate better and help prepare for the next battle.
