The United States amateur boxing community received a devastating blow on March 14, 1980 when 14 boxers, along with their coaches and administrative staff, perished in a plane crash on the outskirts of the Warsaw International Airport in Poland. Lost among them was Coach Thomas “Sarge” Johnson (pictured with the 1976 Olympic team, front, middle right). Commenting on the loss, “Sugar” Ray Leonard said, “He was one of the kindest, fairest men I’ve known. He was just beginning to get the recognition he deserved. He was really the one who put together those five gold medals.” While this manual is dedicated to all the coaches that have built USA Boxing, the Grassroots team would like to extend special recognition to Coach Sarge Johnson. May his shining example inspire you, the future makers of champions, to even greater success and glory for Team USA.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
