I taught Middle school/Junior high Language Arts/English for 15 years, most of those in Marble Falls, Texas.
I also coached football, basketball and track. I had a skinny little kid come out for track and coached him during his 7th and 8th grade years.
He was a natural at middle and long distances. I just watched him win a SILVER MEDAL at the Olympics ( Leo Manzano ).
I cried tonite........the first time in ages. Glad the old lady had already gone to bed.......
