Following is some information pertaining to a book recently released about our teacher/ coach at SLP, Roy Griak. The book was written primarily by a friend, Don Timm, who was a runner for Roy at the U of M and held the conference record for the steeplechase from sometime in the 60s until just last Spring.

Ten Yards Beyond the Finish Line

Front Cover
Wisdom Editions Gold, Jul 15, 2018 -  - 328 pages
"This book honors the life, philosophy and legacy of Coach Roy Griak. It includes interviews with Coach about his early life, his military, athletic and coaching careers, as well as photos and recollections from family, athletes, co-workers and friends. The work was inspired by my 48-year friendship with Coach and hundreds of hours of interviews with him during the last three years of his life. Stories about Minnesota's legendary Cross Country and Track and Field Coach, as related by the Coach himself, are sure to captivate those who knew him and also those who wish that they had known him or had known him better."--Page 4 of cover.
