Casser Middleton – Benedict Track and Field

“Track and field has meant everything to me. It gave me the opportunity to go to school for free. Track and field has taught me that your mindset is the majority of your performance.”

“I had to overcome a lot of adversity to get where I am! I went to two schools before I found a legit place to call home. In my first semester at Benedict,  my grandmother passed away. I did not want to go back to school but I knew she wouldn’t want that plus people didn’t think I’d even make it this far so I just used it as fuel.”

“Track and field has connected me with so many people from all over. I would’ve never imagined being teammates with someone from France, Jamaica, Ethiopia and many more places. I’ve made a lot of great friends that I know I can depend on later down the road.”

“I just pray to God that we can all be viewed the same. Sometimes it feels like once we take off our jerseys,  we become a target and it honestly shouldn’t be like that. Once we’re all viewed the same,  justice will be served.”
