My name is Larry Menendez Jr., I am the Founder of the DFW All-Stars Track Club. I am a member  at Christ Church Assemblies of God.  I am a Master Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. I have been on active duty status for 22+ years. I received my Track and Field Technical Coaching certification through US Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. I am a member of the Texas Coach’s Track and Field Association. I am also a certified official with USATF. Our track club is an active member of USA Track and Field and we compete in the National Junior Olympics.

     I am originally born in New Orleans, LA but I graduated from Eastern High School in Louisville, KY.. I was a member of 1990 Eastern High School boys track team, that won the only state title in the school’s history. My events included the 100m, 400m, 4x100m relay, & 4x400m relay. I joined the United States Marine Corps right after graduation of high school in 1991. When I was in high school, I was unaware of the road I must take to get to the next level of education and sports. Well, I made myself a promise that I would not let that happen to my children, Ashley and Briana. In May of 2008 my youngest daughter Briana was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer. After a 19 month battle with cancer, in January 2010 Briana went home to be with our heavenly father.  Now, I choose to help other kids to become successful after high school. I believe that if you surround yourself with positive people that only positive things can happen.

My coaching staff consists of positive parents and friends that only want the best for our kids. I have been in some aspect of coaching for almost 16 years, whether it is baseball, basketball, flag football, or track. I know what it takes to be successful on and off the field and I want to share that with the boys and girls in our community.
