Name: Mubarik Musa
Sport: Cross Country
Got Game: The one downside to winning early is that there’s nowhere to go but down. After winning the Class A individual title as a sophomore in 2009, Musa settled for third at last year’s race. Don’t expect that to happen again this season. Now a senior, Musa is once again considered the favorite. His third-place result wasn’t for lack of effort — he posted a very impressive time of 16:00 in the Class A final. Look for a big rebound race this fall, and check in with Dyestat for full coverage of the cross country state meets this fall.
