What makes the 727 Track Club successful is the dedication and experience of our coaching staff.
Paul Mack | Events: All Running Events | Ages: All ages
A graduate of Dunedin (FL) High School, Paul was a versatile and talented sprinter who qualified for the state track meet three years in a row. He competed in the 200m and the 400m, as well as the 4x100m and 4x400m relays. Posting times consistently in the 21 second range, he was the 1995 PCAC champion in the 200 meters. With his 400m time of 48 seconds, Paul led his Dunedin team to a PCAC conference title in the 4x400m relay in 1993. Paul went on to compete for Florida Community College in Jacksonville. As a coach at the AAU level for several years, Paul’s disciplined style of training and conditioning combined with his ability to develop a strong rapport with athletes of all age groups has produced many national qualifiers in a number of different events. Several of these national qualifiers, both individuals and relay teams, have finished ranked in the top ten in their respective age groups at the AAU Junior Olympic Games. Paul also manages the fundraising activities for the club and develops the strong partnerships with our sponsors.
