On June 4, 2011, the Institute for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development was fortunate to sit down with Coach Ken Abney of the United Stars Track Club of Philadelphia. Coach Abney has a long history of coaching track and field, and brought with him two of his former athletes: Juliette Poussot and Charlene Maddox. With us, Coach Abney told the story of his call to become a coach. Poussot and Maddox share moments when Abney’s leadership and guidance stretched beyond the track, and how he was more than just a coach, but a father figure to them.
