Coach buys the shoes for Ghost and then he became part of the team. On Saturday it was race day and then he sees a lot of people there. His family makes signs to cheer him on.
There were sunflower seeds at the beginning which he bought often and he kind of thought of his dad when he wasn't drunk. Coach was kind of a symbol that Ghost could achieve the goal if he tried hard enough. Coach had an identical life to Ghost.
The story ends with Ghost racing people and he finds Brandon Simmons there and they race. Ghost had gotten his uniform and his family members were cheering him on. He was on his best behavior at school for the rest of the week before the race. Ghost had come along way from a kid with his dad in jail to the fastest runner on a proffesional team.
