A few weeks ago, Louisiana Tech Track & Field lost one of our valued teammates.
The full article can be found here.
At the funeral, I couldn’t help but think about the poem To an Athlete Dying Young by A.E. Housman.
“Now you will not swell the rout
Of lads who wore their honours out,
Runners whom renown out ran
And the name died before the man.”
Like the athlete in the poem, Noah Riche Died in the height of his glory.
A modern day Spartan, who was known for his skill as a javelin thrower as well as his good character.
Rest in peace Noah Riche.
