Athletes Academy own, St. Joe’s Prep Star Hurdler, Miles Green made his much anticipated decision on where he will attend college come next fall. Green has chosen to take his talents to Virginia Tech!
“The campus is beautiful, the training facilities are great, and I got along real well with the squad and coaches,” the 6-foot-3, 175-pound senior said after committing to the Hokies on Wednesday afternoon. “I pretty much knew then that it was the right school for me.”
Green excels in the 400-meter hurdles, 400 dash, and 4×400 relay. With a clocking of 48.67 seconds, he placed third in the 400 at the PIAA Class 3A championships at Shippensburg last May.
Green chose Virginia Tech over Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi State, North Carolina, and Illinois, among others. His other official visit was to Michigan.
The 18-year-old from Roxborough placed second in the 400 hurdles in 53.43 at the New York Relays in April.
Green, who plans to major in political science, placed sixth with a personal-best mark of 52.87 in the 400 hurdles at the prestigious New Balance Nationals Outdoor at North Carolina A&T in June.
Hard work really does pay off and we couldn’t be prouder. Best of luck Miles. Go Hokies!
