Duxbury High athletic building dedicated to slain soldier

As cross-country captain at Duxbury High School in his senior year, Tim Steele would lead the team to the little park next to Bluefish River Bridge to stretch before running. On the jog over, Steele, who graduated in 2004, would often do a somersault on someone’s lawn, then keep running without missing a beat.

“He would challenge us to do the same, and some would, but no one ever came close to doing it as well as Tim,” wrote Jonathan Lynch, a junior on that team.
