Ed Koch, Larry Ellis and USATF New Jersey Honored with National Awards Los Angeles, CA - December 5, 1999 - National honors were recently bestowed upon a current member and a late member of USATF New Jersey as well as upon the Association itself.
At various awards ceremonies, during the course of the recently completed USATF National Meeting in Los Angeles, Ed Koch, Larry Ellis and USATF New Jersey were presented with awards of recognition for their outstanding commitment to the sport of track & field
Koch went onto say " During my competive career at the University or Penn and than later in my roles with USATF I have been fortunate to be exposed to three great coaches all of whom came from the IVY Leage: Bob Giegengack (at Yale) , Jim Tuppeny (my own coach at Penn and former Penn Relays Director), and Larry Ellis . The common thread among these three coaches was that they cared about all of the sport not just part of it.
As one example, that while Larry was busy as an Olympic coach, he still found time to serve as a trustee of the NJ Association. I urge everybody to follow their example and seek to build the whole sport: elite and grassroots, and all the disciplines because if any one discipline struggles, the whole sport suffers. If in some small way I could carry on the legacy of these three great men, I will be grateful."
At the Jesse Owens Award Banquet, the late Larry Ellis was officially inducted into the USATF Hall of Fame. Ellis' son Larry Ellis Jr., made the acceptance speech. On Saturday afternoon, Ellis was also inducted into the National Coaches Association Hall of Fame. Ellis' widow, Shirely, made the acceptance speech at this ceremony. In her acceptance speech she read a letter written by her grandson in which he thanked his grandfather for being a great role model, a great person and a great grandfather.
Selected in recent balloting were former world records holders Willie Banks of Carlsbad, Calif., Charles Moore of Washington, D.C., marathon great Bill Rodgers of Sherborn, Mass., and the late Larry Ellis, a former president of USA Track & Field who was also the 1984 Olympic men's head coach.
Ellis was head coach at Princeton University for 22 years and was regarded as one of the top inspirational coaches in the profession. Besides coaching in the Olympics, Ellis also was the 1998 USA World Cup coach.
"The blend of an Olympic great such as Charlie Moore with the recent stars such as Willie Banks and Bill Rodgers along with the inspirational leadership of Larry Ellis further adds to the distinction of the Hall.
"Larry Ellis was an inspiration to me as my college coach and Willie Banks and Bill Rodgers were my contemporaries.
"Our congratulations go to Willie, Larry, Charlie and Bill for attaining this exceptional honor."
