This week, we are shining the light on Jahsun Couzan. I have had the privilege of coaching Jahsun since his Sophomore year. Jashun is an athlete that truly studies his sport. Jahsun’s track IQ is equivalent to some coaches. The coaches on staff enjoy teaching Jahsun because not only does he use the coaching for himself, he assists his teammates. This is a trait that you want all leaders to have. Some of my most memorable moments with Jashuan are on the track but also of his leading practices, teaching skills to the younger athletes and being an overall consistent athlete. Jahsun’s hard work in practice definitely shows on the track. Jashaun was a part of the Indoor State Champion 4×200 meter relay, the 2X Conference Champion 4×400 meter relay and All Conference in the 300 meter hurdles as well. Jahsun has decided to further his track career at Indiana Institute of Technology, Fort Wayne.We are truly excited about Jahsun’s future. Check out Jahsun’s Question & Answer Session:
