Billy Bob Stotan
RE: What F-M coach Bill Aris knows that no one else knows...
" Percy Cerutty described Herb Elliot, the 1960 1500m Olympic Champion as a “Stotan”. The term “Stotan” refers to a cross between a “Stoic” and a “Spartan.” The Stotan code explains that an athlete must be able to withstand any physical hardship to accomplish feats of strength and endurance. A Stotan is tough, works hard, and never complains. It also goes on to state that the mind is what hold’s back an athlete in training and competition.

The mind is what causes an athlete to set
limits. When one trains like a“Stotan,” they eliminate the notion that they cannot do something. Once an athlete believes he/she can accomplish anything, and they are willing to work to get to that point; then there is not a thing that can hold back the “Stotan.”

"A Stotan is one who hardens, strengthens, toughens, and beautifies the body by consistent habits and regular exercises, which are consciously and irrevocably made part of the life plan of the individual, as well as consciously determining that the mind will be cultivated upon such abstractions as purity, beauty and logic."
