NATIONAL XC TOWN USA MEET OF CHAMPIONS
“I knew Colin was built to run the moment I met him, but being a great distance runner takes more than just looking the part. It takes hard work, sacrifice and dedication—all three of which Colin possesses. I’ve coached some great athletes, but he is among the best.”
Head Coach - Newbury Park coach
