On The Line, Episode 7: Foot Locker Winner Cole Hocker

In our debut On The Line podcast, Cory Mull is joined by Foot Locker Nationals winner Cole Hocker as the pair talk about Hocker's senior season at Indianapolis Cathedral (IN) High School.

The nationally ranked cross country runner details how he's felt competing this fall, what his motivations are for the season, what he's learned from good and bad races, and what it would mean to win a state title in Indiana in 2018. Later on, we dive into Cole's recruiting and what interesting things he's learned about different campuses. 

Among other things, Hocker talks about his taste in music, what's on his Netflix que and just how much work he puts into his hair every day. Don't miss our first episode of On The Line. We'll have new podcasts every week.
