Jim attended Lipscomb between 1974-1978 where he was an outstanding runner. In February 1976, he became the school's first NAIA National Champion by winning the indoor National Championship in the 440 yard dash with a time of 49.7. To date, Jim still holds school records in the 400 M Dash (47.1, 1976) and the 600 yard run (1:11.6, 1976). Jim also was a member of Lipscomb's record-setting relay team in the 400 M Relay (41.3, 1976) and the Mile Relay (3.13.8, 1978). No matter how many national titles athletes and teams from Lipscomb University win in the future, Jim will always be remembered for being Lipscomb's first national champion.
