Posey kept working and kept running. He's been rewarded with a college scholarship to run track at Cowley Community College in Kansas next year.
“Without it (the track scholarship), I don't what I would be doing,” he said. “I would have no clue. We don't have any money. I wouldn't be able to go to college.”
Posey said the track scholarship means more than the gold medals, although he wouldn't have gotten one without the other.
“He does track 365 (days of the year),” Crabtree said. “There is not two weeks in the year that we don't run. It just shows you how hard work can pay off.”
