Mr. Polson was my track and cross country coach from 1960 to 1964 at Proviso. Although we got together at various times afterwards, he was always "Mr. Polson" to me - the respect I had for him would not let me call him anything else. I remember most his dry humor that he would throw into the situation/conversation at any given moment, anytime and anywhere, and I'm sure there were many times that I "didn't get it." But I did "get" his love for running as I never did quit the sport and I'm still running 55 years later. Mr. Polson, thank you for everything you taught me through your words and everything you showed me through your actions - I will always remember you... .

I was so saddened to hear about the passing of my friend, mentor and Coach. He helped me and others in so many ways and I will remember him fondly the rest of my life. Rest in God's peace Coach.

I remember "Mr. Polson" very well as I trained with Larry all 4 years at PEHS class of 1964. While I focused my energy on sprinting and hurdles, I always admired the discipline and commeraderie the long distance runners had under Coach Polsons gentle yet effective style. Rest in Peace, Coach and may light perpetual shine upon you.
