|Mubarik Musa has grabbed onto a dream – a uniquely American one in this case – and is running with it at the University of South Dakota.|
Clearly, he has made the most of his time away.
At Worthington (Minn.) High School, Musa won state titles in cross country and track, and his success in college – in sports and the classroom – has been recognized in the form of all-Summit League running and academic honors. The junior is on pace to add many more achievements along the way.
“Coming to USD has been the greatest decision I’ve ever made in my life,” Musa said. “They took a chance on me. Coach Fitz took a chance on me.”
