it's Pre Week on Trackfocus.com and here is a great story about Steve. Perhaps my favorite part is
Instead, Pre grabbed the baton, glanced my way, flipped me off, and then looked ahead to Kimball. I could tell in his eyes that he was going to run great but I didn’t know if the 15 second gap would be too much, especially after the morning track workout.
also funny that both schools switched frat boys for the track runners to ensure victory but Pre was a member of Pi Kappa Alpha so he fit both criteria

Re: Steve Prefontaine and the CW football game.
This brings back memories of watching Pre driving around the Bowerman corner his feet appearing to touch the ground light as a feather.
Pre is the spirt of Oregoin athletics and it has been a great ride over the last few years to watch Oregon return to greatness in Track and Cross Country.
If you haven't visited Pre's Rock in Hendricks Park then you've missed an experience. It is a shrine where people still leave medals, t-shirts and other mementos.
