About Kevin Laue

OVERCOMING ADVERSITY AND ACHIEVING SUCCESS THROUGH DETERMINATION

Kevin-Laue-Transparent-About-PhotoNearly seven-feet-tall with flaming red hair, Kevin Laue commands attention simply by walking on stage. His story, however, never fails to hold that attention for audiences of all ages.

The first player missing a limb to play NCAA Division 1 basketball, he overcame the early death of his father, a challenging home environment and a legion of critics to become one of the top high school basketball players in his home state of California while earning a scholarship to join the Manhattan College Jaspers.

Employing a mixture of humor, audience participation, and a uniquely strong delivery, he tells the story of a life so extraordinary, it was chronicled in the 2013 Oscar-qualifying documentary Long Shot. The Kevin Laue Story.

His own inspirational journey is used as a jumping off point to examine the challenges faced by others every day and his triumphs help audiences see their own problems in a new light. He shares his story to help change attitudes and perspectives of corporate, faith based, and youth audiences.

Kevin’s engaging manner, easy confidence and comfort around others make his presentation a surefire success for audiences of every background and description.

Today, he travels the globe inspiring audiences in Asia, Africa and Europe as well as at home. He has spoken at the United Nations in New York, serves as a spokesperson for Boys and Girls Clubs of New Jersey, and is a board member at New Jersey Special Olympics.
