Description

featuring Joe Newton,
York HS (IL) Head Cross Country Coach;
winner of 19 National Championships, 26 State Championships, and 100+ Conference Titles;
4x National Cross Country Coach of the Year.
He was the first high school coach named to the U.S. Olympic track staff for the 1988 Games in Seoul.

Out of print for seven years, The Long Green Line has been reprinted to help cross country coaches build strong programs. This book was the first written by Joe Newton, cross country coach at York (Ill.) High School, whose teams have won 25 Illinois State High School Championships. Newton explains how he built this program into a successful one in just eight years. It is filled with recruiting and motivational techniques, numerous charts for pace, workout schedules, and even a unique meet scoring system. This book is a must read for cross country coaches - beginner and veteran alike!

185 pages. 1969.

This has been called, by no less an authority than Fred Wilt, the greatest book on high school cross-country. I emphatically agree. I wore the cover off my copy (literally). The book was put together after Joe's team won a State championship in 1968. You may not completely agree with Joe's workouts from back then--he wouldn't either!--but his ideas on motivation and recruitment and team building/organization are pure gold, and have stood the test of time: 20+ additional State championships in the years since the book's publication. If I could recommend only one book to a coach who wanted to build a program, or to move a program from mediocrity to competitive excellence, this book would be it.
