Romar, Burt and Sternberg's Life Stories Covered in New Book

| No Comments

Gail Wood, a sports writer from The Olympian, has just released a new book titled Saved Twice. The book is about the inspirational stories of 13 athletes and sports figures that have overcome life-threatening moments to succeed.

Among the Huskies represented are Lorenzo Romar, Kayla Burt and Brian Sternberg.

Here is a little excerpt provided by the author:

Lorenzo Romar felt the barrel of the pistol push against his forehead. "What would happen if I pushed the trigger?" snarled a member of a notorious gang. Growing up in Compton, Calif., Romar learned about the jagged edge of life.

Before Romar became the Pac-10 coach of the year at the University of Washington, he had to learn about surviving gangs. Romar shares his story in Saved Twice, a recently released book about 13 athletes.

The book is written by sportswriter Gail Wood, who was named Gannett's columnist of the year and won a Blethen Award from the Seattle Times for feature writing.

Two other former UW athletes - Brian Sternberg and Kayla Burt - also share their stories.

Marty Tadman, the All-American defensive back from Boise State, talks about the night he considered suicide.

"We all love a comeback," Wood said. "These stories are about the best comebacks ever. The bring hope and inspiration."

With their real-life drama as a backdrop, their stories are inspirational.
