I am very proud to say that I was a LBSC graduate and athlete who had the pleasure to return to CSULB as the Track and Field Head Coach. I was on the track and field team 1957-1958 and was an assistant coach in 1959. Afterwards I pursued my career coaching in high schools, Glendale Community College, and then returned to CSULB as the Track and Field and Cross-Country Head Coach (1990-1994). I have won the PCAA in Cross-Country, Coach of the Year Award and then later coached at CSU Los Angeles until I retired. I am in four “Hall of Fames.” I have done track clinics all over the world. In addition, I have written many articles and books on coaching Track and Field.
Being on the first NCAA Track & Field team.
I attended most of the events such as 49er Days, Brown and Gold Day, dances, and others. My favorite hang-out on campus was the physical education building.
After college I became a head track and field coach at two great universities.
