In his 11th year as a volunteer coach with the Falcons, Ron White brings a diverse coaching background to the Air Force track and field program. White works with the Falcons' sprinters and hurdlers, assisting in the development of 15 conference champions and 59 all-conference athletes.
Following his last tour in Vietnam, White returned to coaching in Weisbaden, Germany. His military coaching duties included two years as the head track coach for the USAFE team that placed third and second at the All-Air Force Championships. He also spent several years as the head track coach, assistant football coach and head of the Department of Athletics and Training at the USAFA Prep School.
After his retirement from the Air Force, White resumed his coaching career within the Colorado Public Schools System. He coached several of the best sprinters, hurdlers and middle distance runners in the state, including an undefeated two-time 110-meter high hurdles state champion and record holder.
White began coaching in the USATF Junior Olympics program and was able to coach even more state champions and finalists, which included male and female champions in both hurdle distances, sprinters in the 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes and middle distance runners in the 1600- and 3200-meters. He also coached a 4A record-setter in the 200-meter dash and a 4A record-setter in the 400-meter dash.
As a coach for the Junior Olympics, White has guided national champions in the 200-meter dash and 400-meter hurdles, a second-place finisher in the 200-meter dash and top-eight finishers in the 100-meter and 400-meter sprints, as well as several national top-six 400-meter and 1600-meter relay teams.
White has also been a member of two Colorado state champion football staffs. As the coach of the linebackers and quarterbacks, he was fortunate to coach all-state team members in both positions.
White and his wife, Veronica, have been married for 56 years. They are blessed with five children (four daughters and one son) and nine grandchildren.
