- Longtime Iowa High School Athletic Association information director Budd Legg has announced his retirement effective at the end of June.
Legg has served Iowa high school athletics and students for more than 50 years as a teacher, counselor, coach, school administrator and game official before assuming his current duties in 2001.
"It's uncanny when you talk with people from across the state, there is always someone who has a positive story about Bud and the kindness he has shown them," said Alan Beste, IHSAA executive director. "He has truly been a point of reference for high school athletics and an ambassador for the value of high school athletics."
