After leaving the Army in 92 Coach Mike moved to Pensacola founded Golden Elite with one athlete Little Mike Jr. he notices his son’s talents and love for running Coach Mike wanted to find a track program in our city that was positive and constructive unfortunately, there wasn’t one; so he started training Little Mike himself, and he started winning, and other parents expressed interested in their child being trained and that is how Golden Elite Track and Field Club came into existence.
