RIP, John! See you again.

Coach Deke has left a lasting legacy through all the young men and women he taught and coached over a hall of fame career. He taught me and many others how to push ourselves beyond what we initially thought was possible in order to get the best out of our abilities and talents. This valuable lesson has extended well beyond running & cross country to many other challenges that we have encountered in our lives after high school. Thank you for having such a positive influence on so many young lives! Rest in Peace Coach!

I remember being in the eighth grade and going to the high school track to watch the cross country team train. Deke used to see me there and asked if I was interested in running. He let me run with the team all season. I was so awful but Deke made me feel like I was going to be the next Olympic marathon champion. I got to see how all his runners respected him and how coach loved all of them from the best runner to the worst! ( Me at that time). I remember his record being something like 330 wins an 3 losses! In all the years I knew Deke I can honestly say there will never be another coach like him. Not only did he care about what we could give to the team but how we would turn out as men and women! Thank you coach for helping me become the man I am today! Your character had and still has such a profound impact in my life. May heaven be filled with beautiful running trails! Love and miss you!

Deke was the best coach I ever had. He knew how to push me to be a better runner. Now that I am a cross country coach I am taking what he taught me and passing it on to another generation of runners (short-quick-short-quick up those hills!). Hopefully I can do for other runners what he did for me. Thanks coach.
