Central High had a winning track team, and Bill wanted to be on it. As soon as track season opened, he began to work out with the team every afternoon after school, although he was a sophomore and could only make the team as a regular in his junior year.
As he trained, Bill progressed as a distance runner. The coach began to notice and encourage him. The newspapers referred to him as a "promising sophomore." The varsity trackmen treated him like a teammate.
Then the sophomores were told that they could run in the next two meets. Although these were conference meets, they were facing schools that were not so highly competitive. But if he did well, Bill might earn his letter as a sophomore. He trained hard. The afternoon of the race he went home right after school to rest and to eat supper.
