I was watching the USA v China basketball game yesterday and the best part of the very one sided game was the quick look at the stands and there was Carl Lewis with a great UH hat on! Made my day.
He just seems to represent his University quietly and with dignity. With his money and now being a volunteer coach has contributed greatly over the decades. Just look at the athletes we have coming in next year. Rated The number 2 class in America. I still have the T-shirt they handed out a decade ago with all the medals he won.
Ran into him at a bar a couple years ago. Super nice guy. Sat and talked UH sports with me for a couple hours.
