Anyone remember Harding’s Ron Davis?

I recently spoke with the new women’s track coach at San Jose State University, former Harding High track standout Ron Davis. In May of 1959 Davis set the state record in the mile run with a time of 4:23 and later that month at the New England meet at Brown University, he timed out a 4:20.1 — the sixth fastest clocking in the country at that time.
Is there anyone out there that knew Ron well or went to Harding with him? If so, I’d love to talk with you about him. Drop me an e-mail at or respond to this blog post. Thanks!
