The Resources City Cavaliers have just completed in 2 full track and area seasons. They already have their second athlete headed to a Department I program.

Sam Albert has actually established from missing out on the state meet as a student, to making a state medal with a third-place coating in the shot put in 2015, to being an All-American at the New Equilibrium Nationals Indoor fulfill. Now he's readied to sign up with the Missouri Tigers after his senior season.

" It's always been a dream of mine to go throw there," Albert said. "... After I quit playing football because of injuries, I got the shot and started taking it real serious."

Albert said he constantly wished to remain close to house for college, yet the dream of going to Missouri began with a wish to play football. After multiple injuries made him leave football in early senior high school, he transitioned to concentrate on throwing in track and also field.

" I started throwing in sixth quality," Albert said. "8th quality football season, I tore my ACL as well as meniscus, re-tore my ACL in ninth grade, so missed both those periods as well as barely made it back for 10th-grade period. I made it to sectionals that year, I was planning on going to state, however I flopped at sectionals. From that factor on, I actually wanted to begin taking it significant as well as start training all year."

Albert claimed part of the draw for Missouri was off the area since he intends to be in the audit program, but another was reaching compete versus SEC competitors so he can remain to function to his largest objectives.

" I have actually numerous goals set for shot put and also the first one is to toss 20 meters (concerning 65 feet, 7 inches) and the second one is to visit the Olympic tests," Albert stated. "Competing in the SEC, which is one of the most competitive seminar for shot putting in university, will just help me get subjected to other guys who get on the Olympic level and help obtain me all set for it."

In in between his student as well as junior year he sort of made a big stride," Resources City track and area train Scott Gschwender claimed. "Offseason work and also after-practice job is where we saw he was mosting likely to be something as well as if he remained to do what he was doing, he was going to get to one of the D-I, power-5 colleges."

Albert will certainly sign up with a Missouri program that sent out one runner as well as one jumper, yet no throwers, to the NCAA champions last season. The Tigers likewise had 6 members make SEC postseason honors, consisting of 2 throwers in Mitch Weber that was first-team All-SEC after winning the discus at the SEC Championships as well as Rece Rowan, that made the SEC All-Freshman Team for the discus and made it the NCAA West Prelims.

He will likewise join Missouri-commit Jayden Dixon that took first at the New Balance Nationals Indoor meet last week. Albert positioned 6th with a throw of 61-3.5.

" It's the largest indoor meet you can most likely to as a high schooler," Albert stated. "... I was training daily for a number of hrs. It was an actually great experience. I reached even toss against among my future teammates and also he won the fulfill."

However while Albert is competing with other SEC throwers, he will also constantly have a person back home to compete with.

" My father assisted me a whole lot, he was a thrower back then," Albert said. "He went to the Olympic trials 3 times and also his (personal record) is 20.15 (meters) so that's the mark I'm attempting to defeat. That's been one of my major driving forces, simply attempting to defeat my father."
