COACH COLE ON SCOTT: "Our program has many notable guys that had solid marks at altitude in high school but really took off at USAFA. Scott may be that next guy. He showed progress over his high school career, but he’s just scratching the surface of what he’s capable of during the next four years. There’s a lot of training required during that time, but if Scott commits to that process, he may be our next great distance running cadet from Colorado."
