Featured Story

Otis Davis, BS '60

Otis Davis’ track and field career lasted just three years, but in that brief amount of time he broke two world records and won two Olympic gold medals, and made enough of an impact to be inducted into the USA Track & Field Hall of Fame, the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame, the University of Oregon Hall of Fame, and the New Jersey Sports Writers Association Hall of Fame, and also receive the Bill Hayward Amateur Athlete of the Year award.

That said, when your resume leads with the fact that you were the first human in history to run 400 meters in fewer than 45 seconds, you’re no stranger to achieving great things in a short amount of time.
