Dick Leming had a lot of goals over the years as it pertained to his teaching and coaching career.
Longevity was never on that list.


Not bad for a guy who’s been coaching at Northfield High School for half a century.


Leming received the Indiana Association of Track and Cross Country Coaches’ 50-year coaching award Friday, Feb. 2 at the Sheraton Hotel at Keystone at the Crossing in Indianapolis. He’s only the fourth ever coach to receive the honor.
