Ron Alice – Head Coach, USC Track & Field
"What you do for these kids and for the sport is so important. People really don't appreciate how necessary your services are in track and field. It is the only sport that requires you to push your body to the limit each and every single time you get on that line. In other sports you can rely on teammates and excel while playing injured. You can't play injured in track. It is the purest sport. In the olympics it is not called track and field, its called "athletics". You do a great service for the kids in our community and this program. You deserve to be saluted."
