Current Track News
11/21 - Check out our Early Signee group. This is a great start to the 'recruiting season.'
11/15 - Former Trojan FB and Track athlete, Don Colich passed away this week. He was 100. He was an avid supporter of the Track program. Both of Don's sons, Tom & John, were also Trojan track athletes throwing the shot and disc (Tom was All-American in 1969 in the shot). Services are scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 18. For service details and a wonderful bio on Don, please follow the link to his obituary. [OBITUARY]
10/28 - For some of you, the name Jim Stangeland may not ring a bell. Better known for his FB accomplishments, Jim's USC track connection runs deep. From AZ, Jim was the coach at N. Phoenix HS; was Ernie Bullard and Jim Brewer's PV coach (Brewer was first prep to clear 15') and was suceeded there by Vern Wolfe. [Jim, Vern, and J. Walter Smith all entered the service together. Jim would became a pilot.]
A pole vaulter himself, Jim would later coach Jeff Ryan at USC to a vault of 17' 10. We lost Jim last week, he was 93. [OBITUARY]
10/26 - I was introduced to a new book this week, "Leon Patterson: A California Story." Leon was a Trojan All-American in the discus. Here's a primer: The life of Trojan discus All-America Leon Patterson is examined in the new biography, Leon Patterson: A California Story (Devil Mountain Books). Patterson died at 21 in 1954 shortly after placing third in the NCAA Championship meet, then fans and teammates alike learned that he had been terminally ill and had known it since he was 18. To purchase this book about Leon, click this LINK.
