"This is heaven. This is where track coaches go to die. I've seen it (Tad Gormley Stadium) changed from a barely adequate track facility for school kids to what I think is the best complex in the country. It's always been my dream to compete or coach in a world-class facility. I touched that dream today."

Danny Theil, Track Coach Tulane University
