Synopsis

For 50 years, Paul Limmer was a world class track coach at Long Island's Mepham High School. He holds NY State's record for wins with 737 and was inducted into the 2016 New Balance Coaches Hall of Fame. Limmer's true legacy, however, has nothing to do with awards. Thousands of former athletes, many of whom never broke a single record or won a solitary trophy, credit him for changing their lives. THE 5TH MAN is the story of all the other kids - the ones who never felt "seen" - until Paul Limmer came into their lives.
