The Roosevelt

Don Mitchell Randy Wagner Memorial Track Meet 2021

Welcome Stadium, Dayton, Oh hosted the annual Roosevelt Memorial Track meet in honor of longtime supporter and principal of Roosevelt High School John J. Webb who passed away in March 2021. Webb spent 37 Years as a Dayton Public Schools educator not only at Roosevelt High School but also at Dunbar, Roth, and Longfellow Elementary School. Mr. Webb helped to start the Roosevelt Relays that would later come to be known as the Don Mitchell Randy Wagner Memorial Track Meet.


You could always find him seated on the inside track bench on the home team side with friends and colleagues. Being a muti-sport college athlete himself and in the Alabama A&M Hall of Fame, he loved sports, people, and life, he will be deeply missed. This colleague was made to encompass the spirit of the student athletes in honor of John J. Webb and dedicated to The Don Mitchell Randy Wagner Memorial Track Meet 2021.
