Don Hellison was a legend in the field of physical education and youth development and the impact he made throughout his life is immeasurable. This contribution to the monograph cannot begin to illustrate the totality of Don’s achievements throughout his life and academic career. It provides a life history of Hellison across three phases: the lone ranger, trailblazer, and icon phases that aligned with various periods and events in his life and in the United States and the world. It concludes with a statement of gratitude to Hellison for the many gifts he gave to urban youth, his students, colleagues, and importantly to his family and friends. His legacy will live on for a very long time.
