Athlete of the Week: Liverpool's Steve Schulz

LIVERPOOL, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - NewsChannel 9’s latest Athlete of the Week will be leading the Liverpool cross country squad into the National meet this week in Oregon.

For the fourth straight year, the Liverpool boys cross country team will be running at the Nike Cross Country National championships this Saturday.  All season long, senior Steve Schulz has the anchor for the Warriors.

"Going to nationals again as a senior is a pretty big deal. Not too many people get to do it. It is really exciting. I like this year that I will get to see everyone on my team and their reactions to it, because I know the guys on the team enjoyed that from me last year,” Steve said.

For Steve, racing holds a special meaning to him. 

Each time he runs, he dedicates the race to his late cousin Timmy Schulz.

"Once you can start pushing through it and really getting into the hard stuff you will be able to succeed a lot. The pride is worth way more than quieting.  Once you can really push through something you will be successful,” Steve said.
