Quote Of The Day
“I’ve always been a guy that just shows up every day and I work hard. I remember when back as a high school coach I just wanted to do well. When I came to Florida I wanted to be the best assistant coach I could be. And then when I became the head coach I told [then-AD] Jeremy Foley—I gave him my word—that at the end of every year he’d be proud of the track & field program.
“I said, ‘I can’t promise you championships, but I can promise you we’re going to compete hard.’ As this thing has unfolded, I’d be lying if I told you, ‘Oh yeah, I knew we were going to win 7 national titles.’ I didn’t even know we were going to win 1. But the only thing I did know is I can come in here and work hard every day. And I’ve been blessed to have a staff around me to trust me. They believe in me as I believe in them. We work hard together. We believe in each other. And that’s why it works here, we just grind every day.”
-Florida track coach Mike Holloway, talking in a 4,000+ word profile by Track and Field News Jeff Hollobaugh.

His men have finished top 3 at NCAAs for 9 straight years, winning 4 titles including 2 in a row. Can they 3-peat?
