Jackson Neri honored at All-Star Athlete


WE WILL BE RIGHT BACK AFTER THIS BREAK. . HERE IS THIS WEEK’S VY STAR ALL-STAR COMPLETE. CROSS COUNTRY, 5 K, 7 GUYS RUN, TOP FIVE SCORES, AND IT SEEMS TO BE THE MOST INDIVIDUAL OF SUPPORTS, BUT YET, IT REALLY IS A TEAM SPORT, RIGHT? YES, SIR. HONESTLY, IT’S MORE OF A TEAM SPORT THAN INDIVIDUALLY. YOU CAN’T REALLY, IT’S VERY HARD TO RUN WHEN IF YOU’RE JUST ONE PERSON. IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO HAVE A TEAM AND EVERYBODY MOTIVATE EACH OTHER AND WHEN YOU’RE OUT THERE. IT REALLY IS A GOOD FEELING KNOWING YOU HAVE GUYS BEHIND YOU AND TO PUSH YOU AND MOTIVATE YOU AND MOVE FORWARD, BUT IT’S A REALLY GOOD TEAM ATMOSPHERE. AS A SENIOR, YOU’VE BEEN IN ENOUGH MEETS, YOU PROBABLY BY THE END OF YOUR SOPHOMORE YEAR, YOU GOT TO THE HINE AND SAID, OH, YEAH, THAT GUY. AND THERE’S THE FAST GUY. RIGHT, SO, I’VE GOT TO GET MY HEAD SCREWED ON STRAIGHT AND NOT CHASE AFTER ONE OF THESE GUYS, I HAVE TO RUN MY OWN RACE. IT’S SUCH A CLICHE, BUT SO TRUE WHEN IT COMES TO CROSS COUNTRY? ACTUALLY I THOUGHT IT WAS A COOL TRANSITION, I REMEMBER MY FRESHMAN YEAR AND I WOULD GO OUT WITH THE LEAD GUYS A MINUTE FASTER THAN I NEEDED TO AND DIE, AND PLACE 120th AND THEN SOPHOMORE YEAR I FIGURED IT OUT. REALIZED WHO IS FAST AND WHO IS NOT. AND JUNIOR YEAR, I MOVED MY WAY UP A LITTLE BIT AND SENIOR YEAR, I WAS UP IN THE LEAD PACK AND WHO, NOT GOING TO SAY TO WATCH OUT FOR, BUT DFRNLTS. TO SET THE PACE. AND INSTEAD OF GUYS GOING AFTER ME, I’D SAY THIS IS THE GUY I’M AFTER. A LOT OF FUN. CONGRATULATIONS, YOU’RE OUR ALL-STAR ATHLETE AND SAY HI TO JOHN.
