George Drake ’56

“Soccer coach (sort of) … ”? Don’t think so. “Coach Drake” was inspiring and determined; he took the heavy responsibility seriously and to the soccer team’s benefit. Coach Drake, former Grinnell track and field star, worked the team hard. It was run to the field for practice, run on the field for practice, then run back to the locker room after practice; run, run, run and Coach Drake ran with us. Fortunately, being the goalkeeper, I watched everyone else do the running! We were a disciplined, well-trained team and the record showed it, both on and off the field. Thanks, Coach.
