Let me give a special thanks to the track and field coaches at Payson High School. It was my pleasure to observe the growth of this year’s team both physically and mentally. Payson High School has been fortunate over the years to have some wonderful and caring coaches to mentor the youth of Payson, and this year’s coaching staff is no exception. Head coach Jonathan Ball, throws coach Denver White and jumps/sprints coach Jake Swartwood have fostered an atmosphere of success for every athlete in their program and were committed to running a program that was “athlete centered.” By design, they developed a culture where the athlete could realize their true potential, including how they conduct themselves while away from track. Congratulations on a successful season! I know the Payson High School track and field program is in good hands for the future.
