“Henry has been the best all-around distance runner in Vermont for three years straight. Most impressive to me is his range. He has legitimate 400-meter speed, but he’ll have no trouble moving up to the 8K and 10K distances of college. He can beat you from the gun or he can outkick you in the home stretch.”
Derek Martisus
Head Coach
