Class 2A state track meet: Haworth's Timothy Posey impresses on, off the track

Haworth track coach Johnny Crabtree has never seen an athlete with more determination than Timothy Posey. Posey won both the 110 hurdles and 300 hurdles at the Class 2A state track meet Saturday at Carl Albert High School.

“My dad and my mom divorced, and it was a rocky road from there because she never could get a job,” Posey said.

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.”
