University of Houston sprinter Elijah Hall is one of the NCAA's top sprinters. Last weekend, he ran a NCAA leading 6.60 in the 60m. We caught up with Hall at the Carl Lewis Inv. and had a conversation with him and he candidly opened up on some touchy topics.
Hall, a Katy Morton Ranch alum took the JUCO route to the University of Houston and talks about never counting himself out even when others did, saying, "I never gave up on my dreams I never gave up on what I can accomplish in life." Hall also has three children and discusses how they are his motivation to keep working hard and driving to be successful.
This is a long interview, but it is a packed open and candid discussion with Hall that you don't want to miss.
