O-Zone Prep Spotlight: Cameron Byrley, Parkview Cross Country

SPRINGFIELD, MO - Parkview junior cross country runner Cameron Byrley is off to a tremendous start this season, with wins at Forest Park, Monett and most recently Nixa.  This week we caught up with the Vikings distance specialist in our Prep Spotlight.

WEEK 2 PREP SPOTLIGHT - Miki Andrus, Willard Softball

WEEK 3 PREP SPOTLIGHT - Cedric O'Hara, Pierce City Football

WEEK 4 PREP SPOTLIGHT - Destini Dulin, Nixa Volleyball

FAVORITE TEAM - Parkview Vikings

Cameron plans to attend college in hopes of becoming a teacher, and certainly doesn't plan to end his running career.

"After college I want to become a professional runner for the U.S."

While most high school athletes idolize high profile professional athletes, Cameron looks up to his own coach, Dan Hay.

"He is my favorite athlete because of his dedication towards running is so amazing."

Before leaving Parkview, Cameron would like to become the school record holder in the 5k, 1,600 meter, and 3,200 meter runs.  He is well on his way with personal record times of 16:14 in the 5k, 4:41 in the 1,600, and 10:02 in the 3,200.
