BOYS TRACK & FIELD
PLAYER OF THE YEAR
COLUMBUS NORTH HS
“Tucker is that special athlete who has recognized his talent and potential and is correspondingly working to make the most of that talent. We have to cut off his throwing sessions at night or he’ll continue to work out. We have to pull him when injured or he’ll just push through the pain. I have not coached a more complete athlete.”
Head Coach - Columbus North coach
