“When it came to delivering elite-level performances, few athletes in America were able to consistently replicate that as well as Landon Heemeyer. Now a two-time Gatorade State Player of the Year selection, the battle-tested senior produced four separate race efforts of national import—a rarity even among premier prep runners.”
