For The Record: Will Sumner Aspiring For More In Last Season


- - - 

On the latest For The Record interview, Cory sat down with Woodstock (GA) High School senior Will Sumner, who opened up his season in December with two U.S. No. 1 performances and a career-best indoor 200m times. Things have been going well for the University of Georgia recruit. 

Up next? Sumner will travel to Virginia Beach, Virginia, this weekend to compete in the 500m, where he sees a path toward securing an elite time -- and maybe even a historic one. Cory chats with Will about his season, his offseason and his hopes going into the biggest indoor meet of his career yet.
