We caught up with Foot Locker national champion Dylan Jacobs at the end of March to get a look at how his preseason training was going. This weekend he will be using that training and base mileage to take on the best in the state of Illinois at the IHSA Boys State Track & Field Championship.
Jacobs will be racing in the 3A Boys 1600m, and 4x800m relay but has hopes of getting in a strong mile field at some point this year to see if he can chase the elusive sub-four mile. He's hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow Sanburg, Illinois, graduate Lukas Verzbicas. In the fall Jacobs will be attending Notre Dame.
