Coach Brian FitzGerald could tell Blake Selig was a special kid the moment he first saw him at Rio Mesa High.And this was before the two of them ever stepped out onto a track together.

“From Day One, when he stepped on our campus as a freshman and I was his freshman football coach, he was just a super motivated kid; hard-working, willing to do whatever it took to achieve,” FitzGerald said.

Selig migrated to track and field soon enough and for his success this season competing in the 100, 200, long jump and relays, is The Star’s Boys Track Athlete of the Year.
