                Rebel sprinter ready for 2012 Olympics

                Four years ago, when the Olympics were being held in Beijing, current Ole Miss sprinter Isiah Young was working at a fast food restaurant in Kansas and was basically out of track altogether. While at one time Young may have dreamed about the Olympics, his path to compete in the games was unclear.

                In the summer of 2008, Young wasn’t running at Allen County Community College, located near his hometown of Junction City, Kan. Now, just four years after completing high school and joining the work force to make ends meet, Young is headed to London to represent the United States in the 2012 Olympics. (July 12, 2012, Page 6)

                    O’Neal returns to win championships

                    Ole Miss’ replacement for long-time track and field head coach Joe Walker is someone who is very familiar with Walker’s teaching methods, compassion for student-athletes and love for the school. Brian O’Neal was officially introduced Tuesday afternoon as Walker’s replacement in a ceremony held just a few feet away from his mentor’s former office at the track facility.

                    O’Neal, a native of Pontotoc who was a four-year letterman at Ole Miss from 1989-1993, comes back to Oxford after spending the last four years of his coaching career at Florida and just days after helping leading the Gators to the 2012 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championship at Drake University. Leaving Ole Miss after 14 years may have been tough to do initially, but the journey to Gainesville, Fla., and back has made O’Neal a better coach in his estimation. (June 13, 2012, Page 6)
