Unsigned Seniors: Miles Olofson from Elk River High School

As Minnesota's track and field season remains on hold for the time being, we're aiming to profile senior-class athletes who have yet to officially commit to a college.

 Many of the state's 2020 grads were prepped and ready to display their skills in the early portion of the outdoor campaign with hopes of gaining interest from coaches at the next level. With that not being a possibility at this time, we'd like to recognize the personal best performances and career highlights of those who've submitted their information for our Minnesota Unsigned Seniors article series.

"I believe I can compete at the collegiate level because I believe in myself and I pride myself with a strong work ethic. I am firm a believer in the phrase, 'Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard.' I would be very blessed and honored to compete at the collegiate level."


"I have consistently performed well in big meets; I have never run a big personal best at the end of the season, but I have consistently delivered an upper-level performance at big meets for my team. I will score points for my team where they need them in big meets."
