Congratulations to Galen Rupp for winning the inaugural Bowerman Award, from the USTFCCCA. Galen showed a healthy sense of humor, and some genuine class, thanking his coaches, his family, even his academic advisor during his acceptance speech. Galen had an amazing senior year, leading his team to the NCAA cross, the NCAA indoor, a second at the NCAA outdoor, winning the 10,000 meter at USATF and placing eighth in the World Championships 10,000 meter final in Berlin! A great year! We can not wait to see how he races in 2010! Oh, check out the award, Tinker Hatfield did an fantastic job!
