Davis High alumnus Coach Spencer is thrilled to help give back to the Blue Devil track program. While only a middling triple jumper and quarter miler, Spencer was pretty organized and responsible while in high school, earning him the title of team captain. He serves on the board of the Davis Community Track and Field Club and is passionate about creating welcoming, inclusive environments for young athletes to thrive.
