Theo Goff is an accomplished cross country runner. He qualified to compete in the FL X-Country South Regional, but was injured and didn’t compete. Theo was the first person in his school’s history to go to nationals. He was elected team captain and led his cross country teammates to the state championships. After his family relocated to Colorado, Theo stayed back in Texas to continue being part of his team. This meant working 40 hours, and running 70 miles, every week. Despite this, Theo continues to excel in his academics and has committed to Texas A&M to run. Theo is selfless, almost to a fault. After witnessing a car crash behind him, he broke one of the windows with his bare hands to pull the passenger out and keep them conscious. This resulted in him injuring his hand, but he saved the passenger’s life. He wants to major in Kinesiology and become a head coach to give back to his sport, and to honor his coach who made him believe he could go to college.
