Did you know we have NH coaches and former NH coaches who have had quite the career experiences? Careers which have involved being photographers for Track and Field News, which has been the bible of our sport since 1948? One of whom may have had quite the hand in the development of Nike itself? Well, we are certainly thankful these individuals have chosen NH’s website for high school track and field to share vintage photos and quotes to ponder. This is the first of what we hope will be many posts combining phenomenal photos with thought-provoking quotes.

QUOTE (subject – Accountability) – Jeff Johnson
“To be or not to be. To join or not to join. To associate or not to associate. To do or not to do. Each choice is yours to make, and life will hold you accountable for every single one.”
