Adam Glaub

Post by 225guy » Sat Oct 01, 2016 2:57 pm

He is the future superstar. Watched him last year go 501/500 finished in 10:01. Said it then he will be with or beat Gillum by state. Today he ran 15:12 obviously coming along nicely. Others might laugh but 1440 this year state if nice? Watch for even splits along the way. Hes a pure xc talent way more than track. And thats no knock. I feel gilum better the other way but not of glaub talent level. Talking raw talent.

I'm not sure if he will be able to beat Gillum. He is still about the same distance behind Gillum now as he has been throughout the season most of the time. That's not to say Glaub is not more talented than Gillum is, he's just a lot younger and hasn't had the time to develop yet. Glaub has a great high school career ahead of him. And Glaub did win both the 800 and 1600 AA state titles as a 7th grader and was a close second in the 1600 as an 8th grader. So I wouldn't say he is not really good at track either, but I agree XC is probably his stronger sport of the two. We will see in the coming years though. Metamora has another sub-16 freshman (Pedroza 15:41) too, and returns all of their top 7 next yr. except Gillum. Should be a good next few years for them.

Pedroza was from Spring Bay and went to Riverview. He ran in the 1A state meet for track in the 400 and 800. I don't think he did xc. He has really been improving a lot throughout the season.

Both John Weigel and Mark Scheirer from Metamora were right around there as freshman. Mark went on to win the AA state title as a senior back when it was only two classes and Weigel was very close to winning a state title. I think he finished top 5 2 or 3 times.

He is the 5th rated freshman in the country in the 3200 and the only one in the top 5 not from warm weather Texas or California.

All state with a 5th place in the 3200 is outstanding. Look for him to really make a jump in cross as a sophomore and compete for a title.

I second that! Adam will be sub 14:35 next year. Only his closing speed might be his crutch though in a close race. The closing speed will come just not sure this xc season soon. But I don't doubt his talent!

Was Glaub hurt over the summer? He s back alittle farther then id expect so far this yea. Its early but my state favorite is Gebhardt, his closing speed is the difference! Then Richtman.

Adam rounding into form. At conference he looked relaxed in an easy victory. Not sure why Skaggs pushes first mile in 4:54 then gets crushed. Hopefully he'll run smarter race next time. Outclassed
