Dear Classreport users: We are one of the premiere social networking websites dating back to 2003. We are a small, family owned and operated business with less than 15 staff but freely host over a million class websites. Classreport holds a special place in the hearts of our users: Bravos. We are funded solely through your voluntary contributions. Despite our small size we have the same costs as any other site: servers, security, software, and staff. So now we ask for your support. If everyone reading this gave $15, our fundraiser would be over in one day. If Classreport is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free for another year. Thank you.

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Paul Economides


Adapted from a story in the April 23, 2013 Alton Telegram:

"The most amazing Madison County, Ilinois record was set in 1963 by Paul Economides of Alton High when he heaved the shot put 58 feet 3 inches to set the county oudoor shot record. Fifty years later the recod still stands. That toss was the best of Economides’ prep career and ranks No. 165 in all-time Illinois track history. The Redbirds went on to win their first of three state titles that 1963 season and Economides eventually became an AHS assistant coach.

"'He coached the shot, discus and the pole vault,' said Bill Diddlebock, a former AHS head coach and assistant who worked with Economides. 'He was a strength guy. … He was a protege of (former assistant) Pete Stavros and he took over for him after Pete left. Pete was more of a strategy guy, but Paul was more of a power guy.'

"'He was the kind of a guy who could lift refrigerators,' Diddlebock quipped about Economides.

After college Paul served in the Air Force before going into coaching. Paul now lives in New Mexico and holds the American records in the men’s 65-and-older discus and eight pentathlon. In 2012 he set the Track and Field Masters Division weight pentathlon (shot put, discus, weight throw, hammer throw and javelin) record and was the only one in all age divisions to score over 5000 points. He continues to compete in U.S. and international events.

Admin Note: The 50 year old high school shot put record set by Paul back in 1963 was finally broken on April 29 2014, at the Madison County Illinois meet. Martinus Mitchell, a 6’ 6” senior from Collinsville, heaved the 12-pound ball 59 feet 11 inches.
