A year ago, Vince DeGrado sat in the hotel while his Allen Community College cross country team searched for success at the NJCAA Region 6/Jayhawk East Conference Championships. 

All season long, DeGrado had been unable to provide his runners with the necessary coaching and motivation during competitions due to a suspension he earned in the 2018 indoor track season. 

“Imagine going to parent day, and you’re the only kid there without a parent,” DeGrado said. “How would you feel if you were a kid? Your confidence would be down. That is exactly what my kids were dealing with last season.”
