“Coach Buehler is someone who left an indelible mark in my life. He’s simply a great person, a great human being.”—Jackie Joyner-Kersee, three-time Olympic gold medalist
"Coach Buehler is an uncelebrated role model who has had a monumental effect on so many lives. He is the kind of coach and person you would be blessed to come in contact with."—Allyson Felix, three-time Olympic medalist 

“There are a lot of great men and there are a lot of great coaches. And Coach Buehler is definitely one of those.”—Carl Lewis, nine-time Olympic gold medalist

“What makes Buehler such a fascinating character isn’t how much he won on the track, but how he lived. And how he didn’t allow the success to change him and instead used it to help change the lives of others. The only pity is, there’s probably no one else like him.”—J. Michael Falgoust, reporter for USA Today
