Lionel Ballard

Lionel is a Tampa and sports man from ground up. He attended  George Washington Carver Elementary, Ernest E Just Jr. High School,  graduated from Howard W. Blake High School in 1970. At Blake he was a member of the golf team and the 1969 Championship Football Team.  He attended Mississippi Valley State College and retired from Tampa Electric Company after 40 years of service.

As for golf, it's been a life long pursuit of the sound of “the ping” of a solid hit and long drive. Lionel has been an avid golfer since childhood and now serve on the Golf Advisory Board for the Tampa Sports Authority, as well as, being the Community Outreach Coordinator at First Tee Tampa Bay.

Lionel is passionate about the sport, the park, and its history. Finding, and in some cases reconstructing, all of the elusive  pieces for this book have been a labor of love  for him.
