GLENDALE — To say Jeff Nelson’s distance-running exploits will live on in area lore would be an understatement. They already do, but if there was any doubt, it will be subsided in the next eight months. For the second time, Nelson will find his way into the Glendale Community College Athletic Hall of Fame. The honor will come seven months removed from him being enshrined into the Burbank High Hall of Fame as part of its first-ever class. For Nelson, a cross-country standout, he will be inducted into the GCC Hall for Outstanding Athletic Achievement, two years removed from getting inducted as part of the state-champion 1980 cross-country squad.
