Jack Keller (18’)
Kelete: How do you feel this year is going and did you meet your goals this season?
Jack: I feel like this year is going well. You know, I’ve been looking forward to indoor since the end of Track and Field last spring. I set two goals for myself: to get into FCIACS and do well in it. I achieved the first part of my goal and that was getting into FCIACS. Now, I need to achieve the second part of my goal and hopefully, I can do well.
Kelete: Being a senior/captain, do you feel like there’s a little bit of more expected out of you than others?
Jack: Most definitely. If you want someone to follow your lead, you have to show them the right way. I get sometimes you get tired, even captains get tired, but being a captain and this being my senior season, this is my last chance to show what I’m made of.
Kelete: Do you think track should be recognized more?
Jack: Of course. I mean why wouldn’t anyone want to do track? It’s not all about running. It’s about competing with yourself and making friends and working as a team to get as many points in your event to win. I feel like track is the best place to meet friends. I made so many friends myself at track. I love my track team and I get along with them.
Kelete: What gets you pumped about going to track everyday?
Jack: I’m not always pumped for track, but the reason why I love going to track is because the people and our coaches. We just have the best group of kids and if you take some time to get to know them, you will slowly find out that they are hard workers. Coach Bradley, Coach Albano, Coach K are amazing guys and really cool and they all will help you with anything.
Jack has been doing indoor track at Brien McMahon since his freshmen year. He’s been around good teams and he’s been around bad teams but this year he's going to make sure that his team is 100% committed and make sure that he leads them in the right direction.
