Angola’s Steury wins Gatorade Indiana Boys Cross Country Player of the Year

ANGOLA, Ind. (WPTA21) -- After a remarkable junior season with the Hornets, Angola distance runner Izaiah Steury adds a huge award to his resume.

Thursday, Gatorade named Steury it's Indiana Boys Cross Country Player of the Year.

Steury won every single race he competed in during the Indiana high school cross country season. He capped off the year with an individual victory at the state championship in Terre Haute, running the course in 15:23.7.

We profiled Steury in a special report last November, tracking his life journey from an orphan in Ethiopia, to a state champion in Indiana.
