He leaves behind the grateful hearts of thousands of students he’s molded and mentored as head track and cross-country coach and professor in the Health, Physical Education and Recreation department. He even has a trail named for him — the Al Buehler Cross Country Trail — around the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Course.
