Patrick Dormer, but always known to me as Mr. Dormer, has been my coach for the past 10 years. He’s the man that has served as a mentor for me within the sport and nurtured the passion that I eventually found after my mediocre sprinting days at Xavier High School in New York City. He has some ideas on growing the sport of track and field. I figured before we start the outdoor season, I’d like to introduce the CITIUS MAG community to Mr. Dormer as he’ll probably become a recurring guest on the show to share his takes from time to time. He’s not crazy. He’s very smart and loves the sport.
Hear him out.
On this show, we get a little bit of background on who is Mr. Dormer. How did he get into coaching and why he’s stayed at my all-boys high school in Manhattan for the past 25 years? What’s his coaching philosophy? What did he learn to make himself a better coach? How do you motivate high school athletes to run and get the best out of themselves? He gives us those details.
Plus: Let’s get drug cheats out of the sport forever, build a minor league system to develop track and field talent, fix some of the broadcast issues and lastly, let’s stop shooting ourselves in the foot by scheduling a new relays meet at the same time as the Penn Relays and Drake Relays. Mr. Dormer uses his time to call for a boycott of the The National Relay Championships in Arkansas.
