Gatorade National Boys Cross Country Runner of the Year Announcement

On Thursday, February 9, 2017, Casey Clinger of American Fork High School (American Fork, Utah) was announced as the 2016-2017 Gatorade National Boys Cross Country Runner of the Year. What he thought was going to be a speeding ticket turned out to be the surprise of a lifetime for being too fast on the race course. Rather than give Casey a ticket (he wasn’t speeding), the American Fork police awarded him with the trophy.

In addition to the above, the video is available on the Gatorade POY YouTube page: ​​2016-17 Gatorade National Boys Cross Country Runner of the Year | Surprise​.
