Jason Leezak still a hero with kids!

Jason Leezak & Gabe Woodward gave a swim clinic in  economically depressed Riverside, California. He was very well received by the kids who knew him well.

From The Press Enterprise:
“I’ve been coaching for a long time, and what struck me even last night was when several of these teenagers said things like, ‘I have Jason’s poster on my wall.’ They were watching him in the Olympics when they were 8 or 9. They are going to remember this day, too.”

Moore is new to the RAA – he started as head coach about seven weeks ago – but he is an old friend of Lezak and Woodward. He coached Woodward in Bakersfield, and has been traveling in the same swimming circles as both athletes for a long time.
