Editor�s note: At the request of Mr. Linder, we are publishing his letter to USD Track & Field Coach Dave Gottsleben.
Dear Dave Gottsleben,
I want to apologize to you and the USD Track team for my actions last spring. I have not represented the USD Track team or you the way I know I should. My actions did not reflect the way I was raised and I have let you and my team down. I am proud to say that I am on the USD Track team and I hope I can prove to you and the team that I can represent the team the way I know I should. I have learned a valuable lesson from all of this. I want to show you and the team that I am worthy of being on the team and I want you to be proud that I am on your team.
