Mason C. Burroughs
I have been involved in track and ﬁeld since the age of 7. At the age of 17, I competed in the 1980 Olympic Trials and then again in 1984. In 1983, I was selected to represent USA in the 1st and only Friendship Games against China, Korea, and Japan. (These games were held in Taiwan and the ﬁrst big meet after the 1980 boycott). From 1997 to the present, I’ve coached high school track and ﬁeld. Each year my 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams advanced to CIF prelims and ﬁnals and the State Meet. I was voted “Coach of the Year” by my peers twice in the last ﬁve years. I like passing on my experience in track and ﬁeld to the youth of today by giving them knowledge; not just on the track ﬁeld, but in life as they move up from grammar school through college and into the professional world. We have higher standards for our coaches, athletes and parents. Our young runners of today are the future of this team and they will be our best recruiters of tomorrow. I want our athletes to be well rounded in education and street savvy. I want them to be Christ like men and women. I'm also the bailiff on the Judge Alex Court TV Show, “And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us…” , “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” We have a young club and our athletes have made it to the National Junior Olympics each year.
As a Man of God, I am made in his image, as are we all… We strive to be the Best we Can Be...

The best thing about coaching is helping young people succeed in areas they didn’t think were possible.
A fun fact about me is I used to be in the Rap Group-Private Boiz (N-Soul Records). My favorite pastime is watching movies. My favorite scripture is “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
I am Felicia Jones, Executive Secretary for the IE Stallions track club. A fun fact about me is that I like to collect cookbooks. My favorite pastime is to snuggle under a warm blanket and go to sleep! I also enjoy watching old detective and lawyer shows on TV. My favorite scripture is Psalm 34:8… Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Cross Country & Distance
I have been involved with endurance sports since a young age, running track in high school as well as college. As an officer in the US Army, I lead and trained teams for many competitions such as, the Army 10 miler, inter-service competitions and major Divisional competitive teams. I was also the two-time Fort Irwin Sprint Triathlon champion. During my career I attended some of the most challenging military schools such as Ranger School, Sapper School, Airborne and Air Assault, as well as Mountain Leader Course. These experiences helped me develop the physical as well as mental stamina required in endurance focused sports such as cross country and distance races in track. I have continued my recreational running after the military and have developed a passion for coaching young athletes. I am a USATF Level 1 Certified coach and have coached high school cross country and track for the past two years. I am honored to be part of shaping young athletes to grow in God’s love as well as build their mental and physical abilities to help them succeed long into the future.
My favorite scripture to reflect on is, “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called sons of God.” Matthew 5:9
name is Ana McCullough. I am the
Treasurer for the track club. A fun fact
about me is that I am an ex-Mexican folkloric dancer and Private Boyz's
groupie! I enjoy spending time with my
husband and kids. My favorite scripture
is Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And
He shall direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5, 6 ESV)
Distance & Prayer Warrior
Coach Anna D. Gamble, Former Drill Instructor, United States Marine Corps, where the motivation for running and training others was instilled. I ran track, distance, cross country, half and full marathons during both military and recreational time. During my time in USMC, I represented the Corps in 1983 Marine Corps Marathon, 1981 All - Marine Track and Field Team, 1981 Interservice Track and Field Championships. I have completed several marathons, Los Angeles, Heart of San Diego, Iwakuni Japan, and Marine Birthday Marathon to name a few. I also completed several ½ marathon, 10ks & 5ks.
I have been enjoying coaching since in 2003 (Team Jackson). I started to motivate my daughters and other children to get the discipline and enjoyment of competing out of running. Since then, I have been coaching or assisting middle school and high school students in track, cross country and distance. I am excited to work with the IE Stallions to equip children to succeed in every area of their lives. I am a USATF Level 1 Track and Field Coach.
My favorite pastime is praying, working, and helping others wherever I can. I love training, teaching, and entertaining children and adults alike with puppets and object lessons. I believe that you should use your God given gift to help others. My favorite scriptures are Psalm 121 & Psalm 115.
