On May 18, 2007, Ralph Tate is being inducted into the OSU Hall of Honor. I know Coach had a tremendous influence on many Track and Field Coaches.

Many of the Athletes he coached went on to become outstanding coaches themselves, and a great many of them have won State Championships in Track and Field as well as being in the Oklahoma High School Coaches Track and Field  Hall of Fame.

I am trying to put together a scrapbook for his family to have.  If possible I would ask that they write a letter of Congratulations, as well as anything they might recall that he might have influenced them in their coaching.

Also, I know that a number of his ex athletes have had teams which have won State Championships, If they are one of those coaches, could they list the School or Schools, and the number of State Championships that their teams have won.

Also if they have any pictures they could scan or make copies of it would certainly be appreciated.

Could you write Coach Tate, In Care of Dorsey Jack Reirdon--685 Rim Rock--Kerrville, TX 78028. Telephone 830-257-7863

Thanks you for your help.
