Standing Tall


Praise for Standing Tall

“Move over, Horatio Alger. Stringer’s inspiring story of rising to the top through hard work and the love of a close-knit family is one of the strongest sports memoirs in recent years.” — Publisher's Weekly, starred review

People Magazine

“A rich, moving story.”


“A moving memoir about overcoming adversity with grace and stamina.”


“This is an emotional roller coaster of a memoir, but it is told with humor, passion, and gratitude. An inspiring life story—and certain to get plenty of attention.”

Essence Magazine

“Compelling. . . . You’ll feel as inspired as the athletes fortunate enough to work with the heroine.”

Philadelphia Inquirer

“Stringer’s memoir, told candidly and without pretense, offers everyone—not just the young women in her charge—her special brand of inspiration.”
