The city of Buffalo is paying tribute to a treasured coach and Burgard High School graduate.

Mayor Brown renamed the track at Johnnie B-Wiley field for Henry "Hank" Sevillian.

"He was the person that took pride in helping us to mature and be good citizens and his help has made a lot of people over the country who he's helped, not only with sports, but with their character," said Econuel Ingram.

As a track coach, Sevillian touched the lives of hundreds of student-athletes. He died in January of this year.
