COACH COLE ON KYLE: “The reigning conference champ in the 10k, Kyle is just beginning to scratch the surface of his potential. His footspeed is deceptively fast and his training levels are continuing to very patiently increase. He will be someone we look to in our front pack this fall, and if able to stay consistent in his training and recovery, there may not be too many people that can run away from Kyle during the year.”
