Jacob Vitt has a new job title these days.
"Secretary," he deadpanned Tuesday afternoon.
The West Liberty-Salem (West Liberty, Ohio) athletic director said he had spent the entire day taking messages for the school's girls track and field coach Ann Vogel, mother of new national celebrity Meghan Vogel.
He wasn't complaining.
If you haven't heard or seen by now – it's gone ultra viral for good reason – junior Meghan Vogel picked up a fallen and weary 3,200-meter runner and dragged her across the finish line in Saturday's Ohio Division III state championship at Ohio State University.
