Player Profiles Spring Track & Field

Player to Watch: Michael McCollum ’18

Michael McCullom ’18, a hurdler and sprinter for Andover Boys Track & Field, will enter his fourth year as a member of the team. Already accomplished as a key scorer for the team, McCullom helped bring the team to a Nepsta Championship last year.

Throughout his four years of track at Andover, McCullom has pushed himself to work his hardest in order to see improvements in his times.

McCullom said, “I think just training really hard over the past four years has made a difference — working to make myself better in every aspect during my time here.”

Captain David Onabanjo ’18 also recognizes McCullom’s dedication to the sport.

Onabanjo said, “I think Michael’s best quality is his worth ethic. When the gun goes off, he’s working. When the whistle in practice goes off, he’s working. That drive and consistency is contagious.”

Last year, at the 2017 Nepsta Division I Track & Field Championships, McCullom was instrumental in helping to secure Andover’s narrow victory over Phillips Exeter Academy and St. Paul’s. Of Andover’s 70 total points, McCullom scored 16, earning second place in both the 110-Meter Hurdles with a 15.78-second finish and the 300-Meter Hurdles with a 41.51-second finish.
