About Me

I’ve been involved in the sport of track & field for over 20 years. I started running track in the early 90’s in the Philadelphia Pennsylvania school district at Shoe Maker middle school. After a stand out freshman year at Over Brook high school in Philadelphia, P.A. I relocated to Southern New Jersey. I continued running track for Glassboro high school where I had a successful high school career anchoring three of the bulldogs relays helping Glassboro to win it's first ever group one Woodbury relay championship. I also placed in the New Jersey indoor and outdoor high school state championships and anchored the bulldogs 400 meter relay team to it's first appearance in the Penn Relays in over 18 years. After graduating from Glassboro high school in 1996 I continued my track career on the collegiate level attending Benedict College in Columbia South Carolina. While at Benedict I was ranked 16th nationally in the 100m dash and qualified for the NAIA out door national championships. In 2000 I competed in my first international competition at Simon Fraser University in Abottsford British Columbia Canada. After 3 years at Benedict College I transferred and finished my collegiate career at Lincoln University Pennsylvania, competing against all NCAA levels. While competing I participated in championship track & field meets such as NCAA DIV two champs, IC4A’s and ECAC's.Upon graduating from Lincoln University Pennsylvania in 2002, I continued dedicating time to the sport of track & field by volunteer coaching for various local high schools and park and rec programs in the Gloucester and Camden County areas. In 2014 I satrted coaching as the girls and boys sprints coach at Clayton school in Clayton New Jersey. I am USATF level one and two coaching certified, AAU certified and Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. certified. Recognizing the areas need for a track club in July 2012 I conceived the idea of forming an elite travel track club. In April 2013 I founded Perdue Athletics a nonprofit youth elite travel track club for both boys and girls ages 7- 18. P.A. track club is based out of Gloucester County NJ. P.A. track club holds practices and meets at some of the areas local high school such as Clayton and Delsea. Perdue Athletics is a member of USATF New Jersey and AAU Mid Atlantic. Perdue Athletics is the only elite track & field feeder program for all six area high schools Clayton, Delsea, Glassboro, Pitman Washington Township and Williamstown.
