"Coach Jayroe was what you would expect to find at a middle of the pack NAIA conference school. He often approached training from the extreme, once making us do hill sprints while we had to breathe through straws in our mouths.

Many times, he would call a team meeting and tell us something a lot of us learned as high school or middle school sprinters, something like "When running up hill, use short steps, when running down hill, use long strides" and then he would act like he was the only person in possession of this knowledge and it gave us enough of an edge to win the conference.

His son was on the team, and as such, his son was the captain, and there were strong suspicions that he kept reporting his son eligible for NAIA/NCAA in hopes that his son would one day make a top-tier program like Oregon and become the next Steve PreFontaine, even though his son was in his early 30's at the time and had run track for many years at that point.

Coach Don Jayroe retired to little fanfare in the summer of 2012." - 1/8/2020

"Watch out for this coach! Just ask the runners on the team. I can't believe he still has his job. :(" - 6/20/2012
