School: Pleasant Valley High School
Coach: Philip George
Reason for nomination: "The season has just started but Collin has been a great help in showing younger kids what track is about and how to really get after it in practice," said coach George. "He is showing great promise and I'm looking forward to seeing how he performs this season."
What do you do to practice? "Speed work/acceleration/mileage."
What would you say to someone who wants to join track? "That it's challenging at first but it progressively get easier and easier and that you have to be open-minded to learning from the coaches and your peers as well. Most people don't make varsity their freshman or sophomore year but if you stick it out and keep improving it's worth the wait."
What are your post-high school plans? "After high school I'll probably never run track again but I'd love to be a middle school or high school coach."
