FORT WORTH, Texas
-- Included below is a Q&A with freshman Justyn Ashby-Warner of the TCU track & field team. Warner is a native of Markham, Ontario, just outside Toronto. Warner earned a pair of silver medals in sprint events at the Pan American Junior Championships last month. He's expected to be a major contributor for TCU and second-year Frog head coach Darryl Anderson
Q. What brought you to TCU?
A. Coach Anderson really stressed the academics as well as the athletic side that TCU can provide. The Academic Center also had a lot to do with my decision to come here.
Q. What are your impressions of campus life?
A. It's great. I'm not into the hard work for classes yet (the TCU fall semester began Aug. 24), but it's going very well so far.
Q. What do you bring to the TCU track and field team?
A. I would say a lot of speed. I know that's a big factor because TCU is a sprint powerhouse. I believe I'm going to bring speed to the team and hopefully help us win some championships.
Q. You've had a lot of success already, but is the best still ahead for you?
A. I believe there's a lot more. I'm still overcoming some injuries. I ran a 10.26 (100 meter) during the summer and that was with a hamstring injury. When I get healed up, there will be more coming out of me.
Q. How many events will you run?
A. The 100, 200 and 4x100.
Q. Is there one event you feel is your best?
A. I used to like the 200 a lot. I think I'm now leaning towards the 100 until I learn how to run a better race for the 200.
Q. What do you like best about Coach Anderson?
A. He's a great guy. I like that I'm able to talk to him about anything on my mind. That personal connection is what I like about him.
