Men’s Outdoor Track & Field


Notes from the Coach
This year our team includes a number of returning athletes as well as some fresh faces. Demarcus Williams is returning with a time of 10.42 seconds in the 100m dash; Darius Langley with 54.27 seconds in 400m hurdles; as well as Vernest Dotson with 7.32m in long jump and 14.58m in triple jump. We're ecstatic to see them and many others returning. Our returning athletes will be joined by a number of incoming freshmen who will bring a lot to the table. Be on the lookout for a great season to come.
As you know, coaching track and field is my passion. As the new head coach of Men’s & Women’s Track and Field at Huston-Tillotson University, I have the honor of teaching dedicated and gifted students who come from all walks of life. Established in 1875, Huston-Tillotson University is the oldest institution of higher learning in Central Texas – yes, it’s older than the University of Texas! There are over 1100 students enrolled at HT. Many students (71%) come from low-income households and 37% are first-generation college students.
I believe HT’s athletic achievements have no boundaries. Olympians and professional athletes at one time called Huston-Tillotson home. As a private, historically black university, HT has traditionally supported itself through tuition and fundraising. The budget required to offer a track and field program that matches the athletes’ talents and potential, however, is not currently available. I am seeking funds to take this program to the next level. And yes I need your help!

With gratitude,
