“I wasn’t much of a track fan, but there are a few names that I would hear a lot about, and yours was one of them. I remember when you were setting records and hearing about this kid from Beaverton dominating the region and State. Congratulations Vic on making your mark on local and state history and your entry into the HOF.”
