The national sports community along with the state of South Carolina have lost one of the all time great coaches. The "Godfather" of South Carolina high school Track & Field truly made a difference in the lives of the athletes, parents and coaches he came in contact with. Bob and I met for the first time in 1975 at the National High School Coaches Convention and shared a friendship ever since. We will miss Bob but will cherish the memories forever. Sandy and I send our warmest regards and prayers to the family. Coach, you lived life to the fullest, "From Start to Finish".
