Patrick Henry's premier cross country runner slows down for a few moments to break down his team and the season.

When did you start running?

On 8th grade.  I don't even remember why.  I just started running.

What do you think about when you're running?

I think about how hard I'm breathing and my pace.  This year I've had to pick up my pace because my brother Andrew who is a freshman is really pushing me.

Can he fill your shoes when you graduate next year?

He's probably going to be faster than me.  He's already running faster times than I did at his age.

Who are some other promising runners on the team?

Jacob Totall is fast and so is Raequan Wilson.  They're all younger runners who are really good.

What are your goals?

I've been having a rough year.  I'd like to try and make it to State. 

What are your long  term goals?

I plan to attend the University of Oregon and continue running.  I'd like to run marathons.  My best time is a 3:07 that I ran at Grandma's in Duluth.
