He participated in swimming, tennis, baseball, basketball and golf; yet he found his niche when he connected with Frank Cooper, the track and cross-country coach at St. X. Joe won two individual titles in both sports (track and cross country) during high school, attended Auburn University on a scholarship and continues running today – running physically, co-coordinating events and volunteering with the KHSAA. In 2016 Joe was inducted into the KTCCA (Kentucky Track & Cross Country Coaches Association) Hall of Fame as an athlete. In addition to the multiple Derby City National Team & Individual, Joe has also coached multiple team & individual KHSAA CC & Track champions. His resume includes experience coaching at Holy Trinity and Sacred Heart, and he currently coaches at Holy Cross HS. Joe continues to be active in the running community beyond Derby City and Holy Cross as a USATF official and was awarded the USATF Outstanding Service Award. He’s married to Nancy and is father to two girls (both D1 runners themselves) and one boy who are “running” all over his old records.
