Goodbye Coach Steelman

On Friday, May 15, at 10 a.m. Lonoke High School and the Jackrabbit family, which I'm an adopted member of, lost one of its greatest heroes. Hal Steelman, lost his battle with diabetes after losing both his legs more than 10 years ago.

Hal was an inspiration to all those who knew him personally or knew of him. He was a coach at Lonoke for 19 years and was still coaching girls track at their conference meet just 8 days before he passed. He was an amazing man and his legacy will live on forever!
