Competing in his senior year, Shaquon Wilkins continues to put up impressive times for the Cavalier cross country team.
After graduation, Shaquon plans on coaching cross country runners while furthering his own career. Later on, Shaquon hopes to join the military and then use his Administration of Justice degree to help children who have been abused by showing them there is a better life than committing crimes. Years down the road, Shaquon insists he will open his very own zoo.
For his team, Shaquon hopes that they will make top three or better at the conference meet and would love for his team to get conference rings if everyone sets their mind to it. Shaquon gave two quotes relating to success; these included “Work hard, play hard later” and “When you want something as much as you want to breathe, then that is when you will succeed.”
