Dwayne Dash Jr.

Head Coach Bert Rogers on Dash:
"As his name portends, Dwayne comes to us as a long jumper and sprinter. Dwayne hails from Johnson High School in Savannah, Ga., where he's long jumped over 23 feet and has performed at a high level in the sprints and sprint relays. One of the first qualities I noticed in Dwayne is that he's a student of his events and is always looking for ways to improve his ability. With balanced training, Dwayne will make big improvements in his performance and will immediately contend for a podium spot in the long jump at the BIG EAST Championships. Dwayne is the type of athlete that will not only improve his own performance, but will make those around him better as well. We are excited to have him join the MU jumps/sprint crew."
