Gervy Papion submitted this Living Memorial to Coach Bob Cole on Jan. 15, 2007. It will be used as his LM for the Coach Robert "Bob" Cole Tribute.

Additional profile information is continued below Gervy's LM for the Cole Tribute.

I will always remember Coach Cole for his dedication to the sport. He would always tell us in team meetings that his training method was to prepare us to compete and to prepare us for life. He woulds say "Life isn't easy, so my workouts will not be easy. I am preparing you to be productive men when you graduate."

He was also a good motivator. "Let's roll" was how he started every practice.

I won the 1500 meters and set a school record at the Southland Conference Championship in my senior year. I can still hear him cheering me on "Come on Pap, go get "em."
