Ian Russ is a senior at East Aurora high school in New York. Last year he was one of the top runners in the state until a hip and calf injury kept him from running his best.
This year he has come back and is looking for redemption. He was the Section Six champion, and the 11th-place finisher in the Class B state meet. He's looking for his first NXN berth this weekend by placing as one of the top runners at NXN New York region. Keep an eye on Russ as he looks for redemption in his senior year.
