National leader Trey Knight profiled by DyeStat

In the lead-up to this weekend’s New Balance Indoor Nationals, national leader Trey Knight was profiled by the prep track and field site DyeStat in a new article called “At Heart of Thrower Trey Knight’s Record-Breaking Rise Is Time Spent With Grandfather.”

The article details the unique relationship between Knight, who has broken the national sophomore class record multiple times this year, and his grandfather, who coaches him. You can read the whole article here. Unfortunately his grandfather won’t physically be at the meet this weekend, but but he’ll be there in spirit.

His grandpa has arthritis in his hip and doesn’t make the long trips. Instead, he’ll follow the action on Facetime and offer instruction when he sees something amiss.
