Rohe Track Era All About Us!

 

CHALMERS BRYAN

UT Track:  Manager. 1966-1969

Military Service:  Navy, 1960-1966

Comments by Coach Rohe:  Chalmers Bryan was a student manager for the track team when he was about 25 years old, after serving in the Navy. He was more mature than our other managers and as such I used to give him more adult responsibility. I'm not sure on the exact years he managed but '67-'69 sounds about right as he was there when Richmond Flowers was on the team. Sometimes we used to split the squad -- taking 8 or 10 guys to the Millrose Games at Madison Square Garden and sending the rest of the squad to the VMI Winter Relays. As such, Chalmers was given more responsibility on the VMI trip.
