You can measure success for a high school and youth sports coach in a lot of different ways; number of state champions, number of athletes continuing their career in college with a scholarship and, most of all, having a positive impact on an adolescent's development.

A track coach in Great Bend for the past 35 years, 20 at the high school level, coach Burt has left his mark on the shot and discuss rings that will never be matched.
