A Lebanon sports icon in the nineteen seventies has passed away at the age of 60. John McAllister died Tuesday after a short battle with cancer. Johnny Mac as he was known attended Lebanon High School, where he was two-time athlete of the year and a five-sport letterman. He played baseball, football, basketball and golf, and he participated in track and field. He still holds his high school’s long-jump record. After graduating from Lebanon High School in 1977, he attended Missouri Southern University on a full-ride football scholarship. He played tight end and was named rookie of the year in 1977-78. Funeral service for John McAllister will be Saturday at 3pm at Memorial Funeral Home in Columbia.
