“The last time The Woodlands (Texas) won the state track championship in 1999, Juris Green’s father, Dan, was the team’s coach. Now, Juris has a state championship trophy to put in the school trophy case next to the one his father’s team won. Green led The Woodlands to the 6A state title behind a series of performances that were among the nation’s past and has been named the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Boys Track and Field Coach of the Year.
“I grew up on the track,” Green said. “My earliest memories are going to track meets, watching my dad’s teams. It’s definitely in my blood.””
