In the annals of Clermont County and Williamsburg sports history, Kenny Craig is still in the running and at or near the forefront.
The 65-year old 1959 graduate of Williamsburg High School began running the fall of his freshman year of high school (1955-56).
“I just enjoy running so much,” said Craig, who was the Clermont County League 880-yard run champion three years. “It rained all three years at the league meet,” he said in recalling the days when the CCL track and field championships took place on Goshen High School’s cinder track that was located on the same site as the present all-weather track.
He began running as a ninth grade member of the ‘Burg varsity football team where he played very sparingly that year on the offensive line at left guard. He was a manager for the first Wildcat gridiron varsity team when he was in eighth grade (1954-55).
