Today JD asked me to come to the school and take his photo for coaches wall. To get on this wall you have to finish at States in the top 30. He also got an offer from OU to run for them!

JD was a captain this year. At the banquet the captains get to give out paper plate awards, usually they are something funny that each team mates has done this season. The captains then give each other awards. JD was given “This guy deserves a hug award” then the whole boys team piled on the give him a hug.

This is Coach and he is an awesome coach to these kids. He started them off this summer with special workouts that the boys asked for, set up an ice bath outside his house for them to use anytime they wanted, took them all to XC camp and has been there for each of them when ever they needed. We are going to miss him and Mrs. Coach so very much.


His friends or the boyz as he calls them. This is a great group of boys to have as friends.
