      Someone on Twitter said McDonnell would be on his Mt Rushmore of coaches.
      He didn't speify just T&F coaches, but it made me think who I'd put on a Mt Rushmore of T&F coaches.
      They can be living or dead.

                  After the 1988 Indoor NCAA in OKC, Dick Booth recruited me to resurrect the Arkansas horizontal officials crew. John had little palaver with the jumps but was always cordial and appreciative. Some years later, a long jumper on his first NCAA championship team moved to OKC and I recruited him to my horizontal crew. He has built his credentials and is now a leading national horizontal jump official.
