HOUSTON – Defending Class 6A State Champion Klein Forest isn't wasting any time on stealing headlines to open the 2020 men's track & field season.
Beating Fort Bend Marshall in a relay race will do that.
This past weekend at the Generation Park Track & Field Invitational, hosted by Summer Creek, the 4X200 and 4x400-meter relay teams for Klein Forest were able to edge out the Buffs.
"I knew we had to work for it but I went into it with the mindset I have for any other race," Klein Forest senior Auhmad Robinson, a Stephen F. Austin-commit, said. "I was happy that each and every one of us executed."
The 4x200-meter relay race was ultra-exciting with the time difference between Klein Forest and Fort Bend Marshall being just 0.35 seconds. In the 4x400-meter relay, the difference was 1.92 seconds.
Klein Forest isn't just the best just in Texas though.
Johnathan Wilson is coming home.
Klein Forest has struggled the past four seasons under the direction of Ajani Sanders.
A lack of wins, but more importantly, an exodus of athletes who have transferred to other programs or who are simply not playing football.
"This means the world to me," he said. "This is my dream job and something I've been thinking about since I was 15-years old."
