Coach Boone

A legendary football coach spoke at Northwest Missouri State last night.

Herman Boone was a speaker in the university's Distinguished Lecture series. In 1971, Boone was named head football coach of the newly integrated T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia. He led the team for an undefeated season and a victory of the state championship. Boone says race relations have improved since then.
