"Anyone associated or crossed paths with Coach John Paty knows that he had a passion for kids, football, running and excercise. He inspired thousands of his student athletes to not only compete and do their best, but also to take care of their bodies. Nearly every day you would see Coach going for his daily run. We would love for anyone that was inspired by Coach Paty or anyone else who shares his passion of running and a healthy lifestyle to come out and join in on the fun. The entire Sprayberry family and community looks forward to seeing you!"
