Jason Haynes | Head Coach | Track and Field | Knox College

Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

A willingness to learn and a desire to get better and never settle.


Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?

One of my current runners is an average talent, and honestly doesn’t have a runners body (he’s about 5’4 and all torso). But what he lacks in talent he makes up for in intelligence, tenacity, and pure work ethic. ┬áDedication and a desire to get better are what allows you to compete with people with a lot more natural talent.
