I finally finished my new Luke Puskedra lens. I'm at turns convinced that he will be the next great collegiate long distance runner, and that he will spend his entire career dominated by German Fernandez. But he's already had a remarkable beginning to his career, and I'm sure it will only get more interesting.
A couple things I learned:
Luke was a two-time Utah Gatorade Boys Player of the Year
Luke ran the 3rd fastest indoor 2 mile ever by a high school runner (8:49.58)
His performance at the NCAA Cross Country meet was the best by an Oregon freshman since Steve Prefontaine finished 3rd in 1969!
And much more!
As usual, I'm publishing it because I think it's the best and most complete collection of information about Puskedra on the web. But if you know of something I missed, please don't hesitate to let me know!
