A proud, Bloggin Lincoln High School Tiger, Class of 1984, spotlights the efforts of the Kenny Washington Stadium Foundation, in rehabilitating a neglected athletic facility infrastructure.
The late, great Tiger, UCLA Bruin and LA Rams Kenny Washington.
** Blogger's Note:
Please pardon this bloggin moment of flashback Tiger Pride as we share the ongoing efforts of the Kenny Washington
Stadium Foundation, in rehabilitating the neglected Lincoln High School athletic infrastructure that produce the late, great Tiger, UCLA Bruin and Professional Football Star, who along with UCLA Classmate Jackie Robinson, were co-pioneers in integrating professional sports. During my four years at LHS, this young Tiger experience first hand and still feels the affects that a neglected athletic infrastructure can have on a school athlete. From running on a track that had the give of concrete, to an irregular surfaced football field, with bleachers so old that condemnation was the last recourse in preventing harm to the viewing public, this athletic graduate knows all too well the aches and pains a neglected athletic infrastructure can render. In now its third year, the Kenny Washington Stadium Foundation is continuing its public-private crusade to rectify decades of funding neglect by LAUSD, in rehabilitating the athletic infrastructure that not only produce Kenny Washington, but countless of Tiger Graduates, who's development of athletic skills, was an equal partner in the growth of the complete, character based, student athlete.
