Houser, Josh


Houser Will Run with the Mountaineers at Appalachian State

BT senior Josh Houser has committed to attend Appalachian State University located in Boone, NC. Josh will continue his running career with the Mountaineers running cross country, and indoor and outdoor track, specializing in the 800m. 

“Josh Houser is an extremely charismatic young adult/athlete,” said Head Coach Brad Hendrickson. “He is an incredibly gifted athlete who still works 110% to improve and give his best. On the track, Josh is a true leader by example, but at the same time is very humble and gracious. He knows when to be serious, and when to have fun. When it comes to races, he is all business and gets the job done. However, outside of practice, Josh is one of the most good-humored students around.” 

At Region this year, Josh took 1st in the mile with a time of 4:24, and 2nd in the 800m with a time of 2:55.  Both of these qualify him for the state meet in Jefferson. Josh was also invited to the Mobile Challenge of Champions this past April, one of the premiere southern high school track races.
