Attached are some lists of athletes that I had the opportunity to coach for at least a two year period of time during the last seventeen years. The times listed are those best times which each individual ran while under my guidance.
I am very proud of the young men and women listed in the following pages, as they are just a few of many athletes who have passed through my life in the last twenty-six years. Along with my family they have made my life worthwhile.
