As a sprinter, I've had less interactions with Ray than many of the distance/cross country people have. I think it's fairly odd how separate he seems from the sprinters (except our national qualifiers.) He was very disconnected in the recruiting process and was similarly disconnected throughout my experience on the team.

Ray is very intense and clearly an effective coach but he really chooses favorites and can create an unhealthy environment in the way he has teammates report to him about each other. That said, he hasn't affected me much because I'm not a distance runner. The coaches for all other events have all been amazing though.

Ray is not the kind of coach that I expected from Oberlin. He is definitely knowledgable but he treats people very differently so that only some team members are able to benefit from his leadership. I've never felt like we've had any real connection. He can be way too intense sometimes. He does not foster a happy team environment.

Not what I was expecting, based off what I was told during recruiting. Not sure why I'm still on the team.
