I ran for Coach Gibson (first name escapes me) my freshman year but then ran for Joe Walker, Sr. my Soph, Junior, Senior years. I ran with and shared an apartment with Joe, Jr. (now distance coach at Alabama I think) for a few months.
I haven't gotten back to Oxford in a few years but the town and the Ole Miss campus are great places. I enjoyed my years there. The University, people and town show no resemblence of the terrible thinking that led to the 1960's disgrace. Ole Miss is a great school of higher learning and the people are friendly and love their sports. I have very fond memories of tailgating in "the grove" before home football games.
Glad to see that Coach Walker is still in charge down there in their Track Program. He is very knowledgeable, has trained many top calibre athletes (Mitchell, Dees, Kersh, Nohilly, etc.) and is a good Christian man.
