Best College Assistant Track Coach -- Jon Stuart

by George Stuart
(Brandon, FL)

When the 2008 Olympic 400H trials settled in the blocks, which school had 2 competitors? I'll give you the answer- - UGA.

Who was the coach for them, you ask; the best "never heard of" - -

Jon Stuart ( yes, I am prejudiced. My own son. )

Editor's note: Thanks George, appreciate that information about your son. Feel free to post more if you'd like. We'd be happy to publish a "Jon Stuart Biography" for instance.

All the best,

Best no-name coach
by: George Stuart

The UGA 4x100 indoor relay team recently won the Tyson meet
at UofAR. UT did not compete- - premonition ? But the dreaded
LSU and most talked about FL Gator were there. After coliding
twice with other runners, the Dawg anchor man ran down and
passed Cal Smith, FL ( he of the famed Olympic namesake ).

Another similar preformance and even Dwight Stones will recall the coach who designed an NCAA class sprint team from
phys. ed. class jocks with one scholarship amongst them. Yep,
the same afore mentioned least known and best track coach in
the league, - JON STUART ! ! !

Thanx for the ink, Mo. pere G. Stuart

Update on Dawg relay team :
The info should have stated 4x400 instead of 4x100.

That done, so the SEC Indoor Meet is done. And the best sprint
coach's effort and etc. could not maintain the lofty perch attained at the Tyson Foods meet. We'll now look for super
feats in the outdoor season. praise be, GS

Check the 400m at 2010 meet @ U of ARK. The only
scholarship member of the UGA sprinters.
