Coach Chad had a dream of building a pole vault training facility to help athletes of all ages learn this highly technical sport. Many people helped make his dream a reality. Chad’s uncle Dr. John Scott Andrews graciously lended a hand in memory of his late son John Marshall Andrews. Dolf Berle and family whom is a great friend, mentor, and athlete lended much support along this journey. Thank you to Marvin Gathright who supported this endeavor in many ways. Lastly, the support of Gail and Buzz Andrews, Chad’s parents, who have endlessly supported their son’s dreams. This state-of-the art facility would not have been possible without the love and support of our entire Texas Express family!
