You might call Fountain-Fort Carson junior Markesh Woodson the fastest man in Colorado. He's also the "Loaf ‘N Jug High School Athlete of the Week."
Woodson had an incredible day this past Saturday at the 5A state track and field meet in Lakewood. First he won the state title in the 100 meter dash and then a short time later won the 200. He made up for second place finishes in both events a year ago. Markesh also anchored the Trojans' victorious 400 and 800 relay teams. In all he accounted for 40 of his team's 68 points as Fountain Fort Carson won their 19th state track and field title.
Woodson told News First 5's Jordan Mason, "I'm pretty proud of myself. I didn't think I was going to do it and I did it.">
Woodson is only a junior and will return to Fountain-Fort Carson next year, but he's already looking to the future. He says he's thinking about going to Cornell or perhaps the Air Force Academy.
