THE ATTITUDE OF A CHAMPION:
In the spring of 2003 a sophomore boy named Jason Collett ran an incredibly tough and gutsy 1600m race at the very competitive Shawnee Mission North Relays. Despite his tremendous effort Jason was out-kicked by a Blue Valley West senior named Paul Heffron. Heffron was a multiple time state champion and went on to become an NCAA All-American at KU. When the race was over Jason was very disappointed in losing such a tough, close race. In an attempt to console him, I told Jason that it was okay and that he was only a sophomore so it's not so bad losing to the best runner in the state. Instantly, Jason whirled around and screamed at me, "I'M THE BEST RUNNER IN THE STATE!!!" Jason went on to win two state titles in the 800m and was an NCAA All-American at K-State. His 1:52.35 is one of the top times in Kansas history and was one of the best times in America that year. It was Jason's fierce competitive spirit that made him such a great athlete at Saint Thomas Aquinas and at Kansas State. Do you have the attitude of a champion?
